Free

The public is invited to join us for the opening celebration of How Things Work, an exploration of simple and complex machines, at the Historic Belton Train Depot.

In the exhibit, discover the science behind everyday objects and machines in this hands-on, minds-on exhibit.
Through fun, first-hand investigation, you’ll find out how electrical mechanisms work. See how wheels, inclined planes, wedges, screws, pulleys and cogs make construction easier.

Build a bridge, create a toy with a 3-d printer, and make music with interesting objects.

You can sew on a simple Singer sewing machine, shuck corn, weave cloth, and use other early 19th Century inventions.

Thanks to sponsors Earth Materials Grading, City of Belton HTAX, and Anderson County ATAX, the event and exhibit are free to the public.
