Engineering Everywhere

From cool little gadgets to massive architectural creations, engineers plan and build problem-solving marvels that touch our lives in ways we barely notice.

From Feb. 14 - 23, LSC is celebrating engineers and engineering in its annual Engineering Everywhere event! We showcase amazing technology, welcome expert engineers as our special guests, and encourage you and your family to try your hand at engineering skills in special labs and experiences throughout the building.

Build a model airplane and test its aerodynamic properties in our Wind Tunnel Lab. Enter a fantasy world when you slip on virtual-reality goggles. Get hands-on with Cubelets, check out themed theater shows, and take a look behind-the-scenes at the engineering marvels that make the Science Center run.

You'll also get to discover the future of robotics when you see the work of LSC's Artist-in-Residence, Chico MacMurtrie!

MacMurtrie is a creative, innovative robotics expert. See work from his series Border Crossers in progress as MacMurtrie and his team construct a piece in Governors Hall.

The engineering adventures continue throughout the whole building!

Over in our premium exhibition, Angry Birds Universe, you’ll learn the fundamentals of physics as you use a slingshot to knock down the pig’s castle that you construct yourself. It’s a real-life version of the iconic Angry Birds games!
