Exhibits and Design Lab


Bring your kids for some mind-expanding fun with our interactive exhibits. Experiment with simple machines, structures and shapes, sensors, and imaging, and optical technologies. Kids touch, try and build as they explore how things work!

Your mission: find, trick and control the sensors. Come check out Sensor Zone. It’s designed especially for active, curious kids.

Get inspired to engineer with our kinetic K’Nex Ball Machine.

Design Lab

Make stuff, break stuff, and make it better with hands-on projects and engineering challenges created for fun family exploration. Set your own pace and work collaboratively with your family.
