The Tech Studio
Everyone’s a maker in this collaborative design space! Explore your problem-solving potential with guided experiences in STEAM: science, technology, engineering, arts and math. From designing a wind-powered vehicle to learning about physics by building a better ice skate, our drop-in all-ages activities will inspire the innovator in everyone. Our activities change regularly, so be sure to check that day's schedule for what we have planned.
The Tech Studio also features open design time — combine creativity and construction without the rules! We also prototype new experiences and exhibits in this space to get feedback from people just like you.
Space is limited; first come, first served. Times subject to change.
Innovation on Ice and Science Journal are not offered daily, please check the day's schedule for more information.
Solve the Fall
10:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. daily*
In our new design challenge, protect your “cargo” as it falls 10 feet to the ground. Use drag, padding and suspension to reduce the G-force detected by the sensors inside!

Innovation on Ice
Code Teal: Use your creative thinking skills to program a new hockey play and see it in action on the ice.
Zamboni Design Challenge: Support the Sharks and experiment with harnessing the wind by building an eco-friendly vehicle to resurface the ice.
Skate Design Challenge: Can you build a faster hockey skate? Use a variety of materials to construct a blade to reduce friction and then test you skate’s speed.
Presented by the Sharks Foundation and SAP
Dive deep into data with the Science Journal app! The Tech has partnered was Making & Science, an initiative from Google, to feature design challenge activities and experiments you can do at home. Check out our Science Journal activities here.
*Program times subject to change. Please check workshop monitors upon arrival to verify times. This is a drop-in program that is free with general admission, but space is limited. First-come, first-served.
Programs are occasionally moved into the nearby atrium on the lower level to make accommodations for workshops, hack-a-thons, or other special events.
