The New York Museum of Transportation, 6393 E. River Road, West Henrietta, will offer a science, technology, engineering and math event for young minds on July 22.
The event’s hands-on activities demonstrate simple machines and technology at work in various modes of transportation. These include a scavenger hunt, raffle, make-and-takes and trolley rides as participants pass from one station to the next.
STEM is an educational program developed to prepare primary and secondary students for college and graduate study. The experience is aimed at fostering logical reasoning and collaboration skills while learning subject-specific skills.
Registration costs $8 for adults, $12 for children. Visit nymtmuseum.org/stem for information.
Trolley rides are resuming as of July 22. The museum’s vintage trolley cars provide a re-creation of the interurban trolley era of a century ago.
Visitors can see a steam locomotive, model railroad, fire truck, horse-drawn vehicles and trolley cars. Artwork in the museum gallery depicts scenes on the Rochester Subway, while a 12-minute video of the trolley line plays on the TV.
Museum hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. The rides operate every 30 minutes. Admission is $8 for adults, $7 for ages 65 and older and $6 for ages 3-12. The scenic 2-mile trolley ride is included with admission.
