Engineering Design Workshop, Powered by MathWorks

Permanent Exhibit Opens March 23

It’s time to problem solve like an engineer! Our new hands-on engineering and computer science exhibition will inspire visitors of all ages to explore the many ways engineers solve problems that impact our everyday lives.

The star of this new staffed exhibit is our popular Design Challenges program, enhanced in this new expanded space. Enjoy favorites like Echo Base Bobsleds, Create-a-Claw, Ships Ahoy, and Mission: Mars, as well as new computer science activities. New Engineering Design Lab activities invite you to design, build, and test your own solutions to fun engineering and computer science challenges like Sift & Sort, Dive & Splash, and Program & Collect.

Engineering Stories highlights professionals from different disciplines, including art, nature, sport, health, and reusability, showing the diversity of engineering fields and the kinds of challenges that engineers solve for all of us. The exhibit also includes two Young Learner Zones featuring activities that support the development of core skills in budding engineers.

This newest Museum experience enriches hands-on engineering activities through the use of state-of-the-art tools and data visualizations created in partnership with leading engineers and technologists at MathWorks. For more than twenty years, MathWorks has partnered with the Museum to demonstrate the power of STEM to solve problems and make the world a better place.

This Museum of Science exhibition was created with support from MathWorks.
