Celebrate National Engineers Week!
Join us to celebrate National Engineers Week by engaging in some everyday engineering as you construct and create with repurposed and recycled materials.

Everyday Engineering: Cup Towers
Mon., February 19 and Tues., February 20
Drop-in 11:00am - 2:00pm
Challenge yourself to build a one-of-a-kind tower made entirely out of cups. How high can you stack 'em? The sky's the limit.

Strike a Balance
Wed., February 21 and Thurs., February 22
Drop-in 11:00am - 2:00pm
Build a tabletop seesaw using rulers, paint stirrers and paper towel tubes. Then pile on the pennies and see if they can do a balancing act. Try balancing a bird on your fingertips and make your own 'balancing bird' to take home.

Tinfoil Ferries
Fri., February 23 and Sat., February 24
Drop-in 11:00am - 2:00pm
Investigate floating by building tinfoil boats and loading them with pennies. How many pennies can your boat hold? Roll up your sleeves and dive in!
