In the Imagination Workshop kids can build and create and repurpose with real tools and a wide array of materials. Whether it’s a toy or radio, electronic or mechanical device, new object or old, the Imagination Workshop will present children with limitless opportunities to discover the inner workings of everyday objects, as well as the principles that make them work.


If you can imagine it, you can build it!
