Autism Awareness Family Celebrations

Saturday, April 26, 9:00 - 11:00 am

Enjoy a morning with robots! The DMA is partnering with the Perot Museum of Nature and Science to offer activities with robots. Create artwork with a scribble-bot in the studio or learn about how robots work with a variety of working robots in our courtyard. Relax in our quiet, TWU sensory room and experience an interactive performance with our music therapist -- all before public hours.
