The U.S. Space & Rocket Center opens its newest exhibit, “Spark!Lab,” Nov. 24. Included with general museum admission, this interactive space allows visitors of all ages to become engineers as they work on design challenges, from cleaning up the ocean to creating a flying machine.
The hands-on activities inspire students of all ages to use critical thinking skills to solve problems and realize they, too, can be an inventor.
“Spark!Lab” was developed by the Smithsonian Institution’s Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation, and includes an ever-changing array of themes and activities focusing on science, technology, engineering and math.
Visitors will also use art, history and creativity as they learn real-world applications for what they’re learning in the classroom.
