Urban Engineers

Calling all urban planners! We’ve been asked to design the layout of a brand new cityand we need your help! First, you’ll explore the basic mechanics of simple machines and how they are used in modern metropolitan areas. After learning about hydraulics, you will design and build a mechanical machine to “power” an important structure, such as lifting drawbridge, elevator in an apartment building or construction crane, for our model of the new city.


Please note: There are grade guidelines set for each course. The Museum has designed the courses around academic ability, social development, and dexterity. Grades listed for summer programs should match the grade the child will enter next fall.
