About

Explore the engineering design process with Powerhouse Science Center’s brand new Design Lab workshop! Work with visitors on

Work with museum visitors by Mapping-out, building, and testing prototype solutions to given design challenges. Volunteers have FUN engaging families with the engineering and innovation process, and learning how there’s no single "right" answer in engineering.

We need volunteers daily to power this new design space. You will be our "guides on the side," helping our visitors as they solve engineering challenges ranging from building bridges and buildings, testing out aerodynamics, constructing electrical circuits, and even coding! Do not worry if you are not an engineering expert, just be willing to smile, assist and learn along with visitors!
