Be Creative - Be an Engineer! Family Event

A fun and interactive engineering experience for your entire school community.

We are all born engineers—fascinated with building, exploring new technologies, and discovering how things work. Join the Science Museum of Minnesota to bring your inner engineering creativity to life through the Be Creative - Be an Engineer! family program. We will experiment with a variety of materials to design, build, and create solutions to engineering challenges. Through our interactive presentation and hands-on activities, you will have the opportunity to investigate and discover how we are all engineers using our creativity to solve problems.

The 30 minute large-group presentation is followed by an hour of free exploration during which families visit engineering activity stations including Foam Bridges, Wind Tube Flyers, and Tower Design.

Be Creative - Be an Engineer! is designed to be a stand-alone event, but it can also be successfully paired with other school functions. Consider combining it with your school's fall kickoff event, science fair, school dinner, STEM event, or math night. It also makes the ideal wrap-up to an Engineering Immersion Residency, empowering students to share their new engineering skills with their families.
