Brainstorm, build, break and create! Recognizing the importance of training the STEM leaders of tomorrow, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science will kick off Engineers Week with several days of buildable, makerspace fun including engineering-themed activities, experiments, challenges, crafts and more Thursday, Feb. 25 through Sunday, Feb. 28. Sponsored by VEX Robotics.
From the gadgets and gizmos behind the world’s greatest innovations to robotics, games and TECH Truck activities, Engineers Week will be packed with amaze-your-brain adventures to appease all ages.
Guests can explore the field of engineering firsthand with professional engineers and educators, enjoy interactive demos, tinker with VEX robotics and partake in building challenges, games and more.
