Mascot Mo Mallard (and his keen intellect) was part of the fun at the Putnam Museum's Family Science Night Friday evening, June 19.
Visitors had a special opportunity to see and visit the Putnam's own FabLab and see 3D printers, laser and vinyl cutters in action. They also got an opportunity to see real life gadgets and inventions made in the backyard when visiting the Arsenal of Innovation exhibit.
Visitors contiued the fun by visiting the National Geographic Giant Screen for the kickoff of 2015's summer Reel Deal with a showing of Jumanji.
