The Engineering Design Workshop (EDW) is the Museum’s permanent exhibition that engages over 180,000 visitors in engineering and computer science programming annually. EDW volunteers facilitate hands-on engineering Design Challenges and assist visitors by asking guiding questions, giving encouragement, and providing feedback while they create, test, and improve prototype solutions to a given problem. The EDW also offers computer science activities, where volunteers help visitors build computational thinking skills, like pattern recognition or problem decomposition, while trying out a variety of hands-on programming challenges. Our goal is to help visitors have a fun and engaging experience in order to practice skills that engineers and computer scientists use and increase access to and identity with these STEM fields.
