Kids Zone: Designing Paper Money Part I – Engraving

A banknote is a lot like a work of art with many security features. This class will review these aspects needed to make money – literally! Several techniques are used to design a bill and you will learn many of them by "engraving" your own scratch art printing plate.

Teaching kids about money the way they learn best: by doing and playing.

Through fun activities, interactive exhibits and FREE classes, children can pick up basic and advanced concepts — from how to make change to understanding monetary systems. The exhibits teach children about history, geography, trade, art, world cultures and more.
