Feb. 6: Who Wants to Be an Engineer? Imagine it. Make it. Make it Better!

Engineers are hard at work making life better. Now it’s your turn to be the engineer in this high-energy game show experience. Explore the wonders of the world, visiting virtual prize destinations. Catapult yourself through history, building links to the work of engineers today and improving access to electricity through biomimetics, 3D-printing tools, and helping preserve our shared past. Ask yourself: “Who wants to be an engineer? Is it you?” Produced in partnership with Arconic Foundation.

Feb. 13: Science of Hockey

Jump in the game as a coach or player, and apply cryogenic chemistry, bowling ball pendulums, and reaction time testing to improve team performance. From reaction time to ice quality, dynamic science and math demonstrations will help you bring this ragtag team all the way to the Stanley Cup! Produced in partnership with the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation & PPG.

Feb. 20: Build it to Blastoff

The first mission sending humans to Mars is not that far away, and your training has already begun! Test your ability to coordinate rocket launch logistics or pilot extra-planetary robots. The skills you need are being built through everyday interaction with technology and each other. Explore how scientific endeavors in space lead to improved life on Earth from new technologies. The stars align when our global community works together, creating new solutions to big problems. Opportunities abound in the space industry as we determine these small next steps together. From the Earth to the Moon to Mars, we will build it to blastoff. Produced in partnership with NASA.
