Cardboard City

Wonderful things can happen when familiar materials (corrugate and cardboard), some simple tools, and your boundless imagination and ingenuity come together! Explore building techniques and create objects to make your city the best place it can be. Then visit the Cardboard City gallery at the Science Museum this summer to play, build and learn with other community members. 

Science and technology are all around us

The Science Museum of Minnesota believes in science and education that centers equity, and that science and technology are all around us.

What they do

  • With equity at the center of their work, work to address the systemic barriers to engaging in STEM, and offer access programs to eliminate financial barriers to our programs and experiences.
