Exploring various physical phenomena such as texture, light, colour and sound—as well as including Indigenous perspectives in their designs—students in Rick Retzlaff's mechanical engineering class (ME 229—Introduction to Mechanical Engineering Design) created small modular manipulative play stations designed for children ages three to five. These experimental new exhibits will inspire the next generation of future engineers, add more open-ended learning opportunities to the current museum, and explore possibilities for the greatly expanded children's museum that will open in the Mendel building in 2018.
