Design, build, and test in the Ingenuity Lab!
July–August 2013: The Ingenuity Lab will be part of Design Quest’s Ingenuity Studio.
The Ingenuity Lab at Lawrence Hall of Science is a place where you can discover how the world around us works. Learn how engineers and scientists solve challenges, and find new ways of doing things. Engage your creative brain by using a variety of materials to design, build, and test your own innovations. Even work with students from the Berkeley Engineers and Mentors (BEAM) program to brainstorm ideas, build a prototype, and then test your design as you work to find your own solution to these engineering challenges.
Do Ingenuity Lab Challenges in Design Quest
Starting June 1, the Ingenuity Lab is moving into Design Quest’s Ingenuity Studio for the summer. Visit our Ingenuity Studio to collaborate with staff and Cal students on fun, hands-on challenges every day from 12:00 noon to 3:00 p.m. Work together with your friends, family, and other visitors to brainstorm ideas, build prototypes, and test your designs.
If you like the weekend Ingenuity Lab, this is your chance to try out new Ingenuity Lab–style challenges upstairs on our exhibit floor. Join us to tackle engineering design challenges every day!
Ingenuity Studio: Meet the Makers
Every first and third Saturday of the month from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., you’re welcome to visit our Ingenuity Studio to work alongside makers, engineers, and artists from around the Bay Area.
The Ingenuity Lab will be back in Room 175 in September.
