Design Lab is a place for groups of all ages to explore creativity, design engineering and problem-solving through hands-on collaborative activities. We tap into people’s natural tendency to be inventive and resourceful in finding solutions to compelling engineering and design challenges.

Groups: Explore your problem-solving potential in free design engineering experiences. The design challenges change daily. Expect to stay for approximately 30 minutes.

Some examples of the design challenges you may find in Design Lab include:
 
Engineering Challenge: Design a solution to a real-world problem by creating a testable prototype. If your design doesn’t work and you try it another way, that’s engineering.

 
Simple Machines: Starting from a creative and fun challenge, students collaborate to engineer simple machines to solve a problem, accomplish a goal, or perform a task.

 
Design Challenge: Explore your team’s creativity by coming up with fantastical solutions to whimsical problems. Explore new ways of thinking by building with unexpected materials for incredible situations.
