Build skills and solve problems with engineering
Explore Engineering fosters skill-building in spatial reasoning, perseverance, innovation, collaboration, and problem-solving through hands-on materials and online experiences.
With the generous support of Flint Hills Resources, the Science Museum of Minnesota is excited to open applications for Explore Engineering 2023.
How Explore Engineering works
The goal of the program is to provide a mix of hands-on and virtual learning experiences that encourage students in greater Minnesota to see themselves in STEM, and more specifically in engineering.
The Explore Engineering program is designed for grades 3-5. Educators can participate in either (or both) hands-on, in-person activities; or the interactive, online lesson.
The hands-on activities focus on scalable challenges that can be used for a day of programming or throughout the semester. This flexibility allows educators to infuse quality programming to fit their classroom’s needs. The virtual, student-paced introduction to engineering centers on the big picture: how engineering fits into the world we all share.
