Kids and adults alike can unlock their inner engineer with daily activities, building challenges, TECH Truck fun, experiments and more, while younger children can get hands on with robotics and crafts
Brainstorm, build, break and create! Recognizing the importance of training the STEM leaders of tomorrow, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science will kick off Engineers Week with several days of buildable, makerspace fun including engineering-themed activities, experiments, challenges, crafts and more Thursday, Feb. 25-Sunday, Feb. 28.
From the gadgets and gizmos behind the world’s greatest innovations to robotics, games and TECH Truck activities, Engineers Week will be packed with amaze-your-brain adventures to appease all ages.
Guests can explore the field of engineering firsthand with professional engineers and educators, enjoy interactive demos, tinker with VEX robotics and partake in building challenges, games and more. Outside, visitors can check out the science-on-wheels TECH Truck for experiments led by Museum educators as well as take-home activities.
Children ages 5 and under can learn about robotics, make binary necklaces, and enjoy engineering-themed crafts in the Moody Family Children’s Museum.
Sponsored by VEX Robotics, Engineers Week is free with general admission. Member-only hours will be offered from 9-10 a.m. Saturdays and from 10-11 a.m. Sundays. As always, interactive activities will be disinfected regularly and hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the Museum.
