Engine Heads

Engines are the coolest things ever and we have a lot of them here at the lab in various stages of disassembly.  They offer insights into important engineering topics like crankshafts (vertical to rotational motion),  the Venturi Effect,  cams, gears and more.

In this fun hands on workshop, you'll learn about different types of engines and will make a piston and cylinder model to take home. Wear old clothes because this workshop gets messy!

Ages: 9-14
