Engineer It is reinventing ECHO!

Highlighting the Engineer Design Process, Engineer It! provides opportunities for everyone to be an inventor. Tackle daily engineering challenges at our tinkering bench — or make up your own challenges using our ball wall, spinning table, and other test stations!

Need some engineering challenges while at home or school? Make sure you check out our Engineer It Everywhere web page and continue designing and prototyping outside of ECHO.
