Our goal isn’t just to create the next generation of scientists and engineers, but to help students develop skills that will support them in any field. While Curiosity Machine exposes children to various STEM content areas, our curriculum has been shown to help children become less averse to challenges and more curious.
Curiosity Machine Student Impact
The core of our program are the open-ended design challenges we’ve
created through collaboration with scientists and engineers. Our hands-on
engineering activities draw inspiration from cutting-edge research and allow
students to practice problem solving skills by following the same process
professional engineers use. Students can use the engineering design process
to find one of numerous solutions. Instead of focusing on getting the right
answer, each child can individually explore and learn.
"First I planned it, next I built it, last I tried it. Finally, I presented it."

Curiosity Machine is an adaptable tool! You can:
Integrate design challenges into your current lessons
Expand the curriculum to include writing assignments and presentations
Support non-experts to lead design challenges in afterschool or team-building programs
Enable students to engineer at their own pace during free time or for homework
There is no one right way to use Curiosity Machine, just like there is no right way to solve a design challenge. Get your membership today!
