Tinkering Activities

A new activity featured every month!

Inside the IDEA Lab there is a tinkering space, located at the front of the learning world, which features monthly activities that are open to the public and included with admission. You can stop by for a few minutes or a few hours to tinker around on a creation that’s all your own.


Boat Building
Put your science, math, creativity and problem-solving skills to the test as you design and build a boat - but make sure to choose materials that will stay afloat! Experiment with buoyancy and propulsion as you craft a vessel worth of the stormiest seas.
