Build-It Lab +

Children build projects out of recycled materials and wood in this supervised space where they have access to tools and materials needed to spark creativity, nurture curious minds, and ignite the next wave of innovators.

Ball Machine +

Using the six simple machines — pulleys, levers, screws, inclined planes, wheel and axle, and wedges — children ages 0-99 will have fun moving the balls around the machine, loading them onto the crane, and figuring out how the system works.

Construction House +

Wearing construction hats and safety vests, children learn why lights go on at the flip of a switch and how water comes out of a faucet. See what's inside walls and get a "backstage" look on how a house is constructed.

City Blocks +

With a backdrop of Atlanta’s skyline, younger visitors learn building and early math through different types of block play.
