Join us August 22-23 for Engineer It! Weekend, Pacific Science Center’s first research weekend dedicated to connecting professional engineers and surveyors with the public for hands-on exploration of the science that designs, moves, builds and powers our society.

Design circuits and bridges, concoct scented bath fizz and experience enormous outdoor explosions. You’ll be able to build a car with K’Nex materials. Calculate the length of your stride, then use a compass and map to find the "X" in a rollicking hunt for X-Marks-The-Spot. Ever wonder how an internal combustion engine actually works? You’ll get an up-close and personal look at one in action and learn the fundamentals driving its operation. Electrical engineers will help you experiment with lasers, lenses and prisms and learn the basic components of a battery by creating one with your hands.

Engineer It! Weekend is presented in partnership with the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES). Admission is included with paid entry to Pacific Science Center and FREE for members.
