At Home Engineering Kits

We miss you at The Works Museum! To make up for the distance, our team of educators has put together a series of At Home Engineering projects to keep your young engineers entertained and excited about STEM. Each kit comes with all the special materials needed to make a project and online video instructions.

When you purchase our At Home Engineering kits, you’re not only providing valuable hands-on learning for your child, you’re supporting a local nonprofit organization. As a thank you, we’re including a free YOXO building set with each purchase, while supplies last.

How It Works:

  • Order your At-Home engineering kit through the link below.
  • Once your order is complete, you will receive a link to select your pickup date and time.
  • When you pick up your kit, you will receive a link to the At-Home Engineering tutorial video.
  • Our educators are available for virtual office hours if your child needs assistance or wants some ideas to expand their project.
