- We recommend you register at least two weeks in advance.
- Snap Circuits: Snap Circuits is a kit with pieces that snap together to create complete circuits. Students can easily follow projects to light up a light bulb, make a fan spin, and even create noise with a speaker. This exhibit is a great way for students to learn about electricity, engineering, and circuits.
- Water Table: This exhibit allows students to have the sensory experience of playing with water while designing and building their own structures. Children learn firsthand about buoyancy, water flow, and test out their problem solving skills.
- Rokenbok: These unique blocks come in many shapes and sizes, can be attached at all angles, and move to allow students to imagine and create anything they can think of. Students learn about simple machines, mechanical engineering, physics and much more.
- Rigamajig: This set of wooden planks, wheels, pulleys, nuts, bolts and rope allows students to learn about engineering and craftsmanship through play. Students get a chance to use their hands and problem solve to build anything they can imagine.
- Wind Tunnel: This exhibit allows students to experiment with aerodynamics. They will explore how lift, drag, and air pressure affect a flying object. Students launch a scarf or handmade object into the wind tunnel and watch as it floats to the top or gets stuck at the bottom.
- Imagination Playground: Students will use large foam blocks to discover the fundamentals of architecture. Their collaboration skills will be put to the test as they work together to complete a challenge.
- Keva Plank: Wooden Keva planks provide students the opportunity to experience gravity and the principals of civil engineering in action. Students are challenged to use their imagination and attention to detail to create a sturdy structure.
- Ramps: Playing with ramp systems helps students explore and discover how structure affects elevation, speed, distance, and motion. This collection of loose parts can be combined in many different ways — making the construction possibilities endless.
- Lepao Blocks: Lepao Blocks are an exciting and engaging way for even the youngest student to build, test, and improve their designs. Students use their curiosity to discover the basics of engineering through play.
- Ball Wall: Students discover the fundamentals of physics through a custom built Ball Wall. By arranging magnetic tracks into patterns, students must use gravity, inertia, and slope to help a ball travel from one end of the wall to the other.
- Coding: With colored markers, paper, and Ozobots, students discover the magic of coding. Little robots teach students about computer engineering, robotics, and the importance of testing and improving their designs.
