Engineer It exhibit is reinventing ECHO!


Highlighting the Engineer Design Process, this new exhibition 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!

Also need some engineering challenges while at home?  Make sure you check out our Engineer It at Home web page and continue designing and prototyping outside of ECHO.
