Design Lab

A unique feature at The Works Museum, our Design Lab features science projects and engineering design challenges you can do at your own pace. Experiment and explore to your heart’s content! Challenges are set up with multiple stations. Set your own pace and work alone, challenge someone else, or work collaboratively. Design Lab activities change seasonally with major school holidays or breaks. Check back often to see what we have waiting for you.
