What can I expect at Lab Liftoff: Mega Machines
At this three-day summer workshop, children will learn about machines, electronics and programming by creating a a crazy Rube Goldberg Machine. And what’s that?

You can make them as complicated as you like, the bigger the more mega, it’s all about making, electronics and chain reactions to perform a task.
