The Engineering Extravaganza

You Dream It!  You Design It!  You Build It!  You Test It!

Join us for a fun-filled day of learning disguised as play! Inside every child there is an engineer just waiting to…

  • Design and Fly Your Own Angry Bird
  • Craft and Sail Your Boat in Our Regatta
  • Build and Fly a Rubber Band Gliding Butterfly
  • Build a LEGO City
  • Design a Space Shuttle and Launch It in Our Moon Shot Challenge
  • Construct and Race Propeller-Powered Car
  • Create a Safety Pack for an Egg and Fling It on Our Giant Catapult
  • Fabricate and Shoot a Rubber Band Slingshot Rocket
  • And More!

Move from station-to-station, building cool things all day long with our fun and wacky technical mentors, or settle in and work on a project for hours. Join us for the day or only for an hour. We provide the challenges, the supplies and the engineering guidance; you build whatever you can dream. Your imagination is the only limit!

This fun event is for the entire family. Kids from 5 to 14 will particularly love it. And, it provides all-day fun for less than the cost of a movie!
