Design It, Create It, Animate It! Through hands-on design workshops and supporting activities, families and school groups will explore two ways in which creativity and STEM work together in generating new objects, ideas, and art. The Construction Challenge invites teams to discover the role of creative thinking in the engineering process as they brainstorm and build machines to solve a design problem. In The Science of Animation, participants investigate the computer science that brings animated films to life and then use it to imagine and generate worlds of their own.
