Learn about circuitry and the design process through the creation of video game controllers. Using Makey Makeys, students will create their own controllers based on socially impactful and challenging parameters. No controller is complete until it’s been tested, so buckle down to evaluate your creation—all in the name of science. 

About Engineering Challenge Labs

Our engineering challenge labs are an opportunity for students to investigate scientific phenomena while working collaboratively to imagine, plan, create, test and improve on solutions to design challenges. Students will use their own creativity and real scientific tools to evaluate their creations.

Engineering Challenge Labs can be added to your group visit for an additional fee. Click here for pricing.
