STEM Lab is a playful space where visitors can investigate together the connections between STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), the natural world, and human capacity to solve real-world problems. Enjoy 10-15 minutes hands-on activities exploring puzzling problems and designing imaginative solutions where failure is simply part of the creative learning process.
