Nature inspires countless human innovations, from airplane wings to Velcro to camera lenses. Discover how to recognize, observe, and analyze natural processes and systems to solve fundamental design and engineering challenges. Apply the designing thinking process and use biomimcry techniques to learn and utilize the design thinking process to invent and build a game that incorporates natural materials!

Our Design Thinking workshops cover the fundamentals of design: how to identify a problem and an appropriate solution, how to kickstart innovation and creativity, and how to iterate through your prototyping process to hone in your desired product.

Length: 90-min

Ages: 6 and up

Cost: $50 per student

4 – Take-Apart Tinkering

Work with tools and discover the many little electrical components that make up our everyday items. Take apart that old, dusty telephone, learn how to distinguish capacitors from resistors, and keep all the pieces you want! From the wreckage, we’ll harvest wires, circuit boards, and buttons to create our own up-cycled creations—and learn where to recycle the rest without harming others or our environment.

This 2-hour exploratory workshop is design for kids and teens, adults always welcome!

Length: 120-min

Ages: 6 and up

Cost: $50 per student
