Every object in our world has a story of how it is made. "How People Make Things" tells that story by linking familiar childhood objects to a process of manufacturing that combines people, ideas and technology. The exhibit, offers hands-on activities using real factory tools and machines to create objects with four manufacturing processes- molding, cutting, deforming and assembly.
