Available Programs

There are 4 programs available for Design & Build:

Marble Runs (K-6)

Students will put on their thinking caps to engineer and build a variety of marble runs using wooden planks to solve challenges. Collaboration, creativity, problem solving and innovation abound as the students experience their designs in action!

Explorations: Collaboration, creativity, problem solving and innovation abound as the students experience their designs in action!

Team Building Challenges (K-6)

To achieve success, students must work together! Interconnected building and relays are just some of the challenges that will be presented to your class. Students will strategize and collaborate to complete the tasks at hand!

Explorations: Strategize and collaborate

Temporary Art  (K-6)

Not all art is meant to last! Have you ever built a sandcastle or a snowman? Drawn on the sidewalk with chalk? Some forms of art are only meant to be admired for hours or mere minutes. Be sure to take a picture as this art won’t be around for long!

Explorations: Use scientific principles to apply the engineering design process while being challenged to create temporary art

Towers & Structures (K-6)

Unleash your inner architect! Students will use scientific principles to apply the engineering design process while being challenged to create structures and towers. The sky is the limit!

Explorations: Use scientific principles to apply the engineering design process while being challenged to create structures and towers
