Passport to Invention


Our workshop, your schedule.

Do you know a child who enjoys making things? Does your family have a busy schedule? A Bakken Museum Passport to Invention allows kids to create their own schedule and drop in to use the materials and tools in the student workshop. Themed programming options provide inspiration for young inventors.

For students ages 8 -18.
