Design Challenges is a new Museum program designed to introduce students and visitors to the engineering design cycle. By participating in a hands-on activity to design, build, and test a prototype solution to a given problem, visitors have a fun and engaging experience with engineering and innovation processes.
Design Challenges are offered 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. daily in the Gordon Current Science & Technology Center. The activities are recommended for students grades 4 - 10 as well as for small family groups.
Educators: Help us better accommodate your group during your field trip. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 617 589-0328 to discuss planning Design Challenges into your schedule.
