Like any other skill, it takes practice! We’re here to help you learn.
At Curiosity Machine, we practice by building hands-on engineering design challenges. We believe that through building, you learn not only how something works, but why it works.
And when a design doesn't work, why not? You’ll have to try new ideas, learn from your mistakes, and find your own solutions. Keep building, keep practicing, and with time you'll surprise yourself with your creative inventions.
Sounds challenging? We agree! That’s why we created Curiosity Machine. We support students, parents, educators, and mentors to build, learn, and teach using the engineering design process.
Together, we inspire children to succeed by being curious, creative, and persistent.
What makes scientists and engineers curious? Watch videos of the experts sharing their research and inventions.
Find a challenge and try to build it! Follow the engineering design process and document as you plan, build, and test.
Stuck? Need support? Looking for a new idea? Join a membership and get feedback on your designs from a Curiosity Machine mentor.
Wrap up your design by reflecting and sharing a photo. Check out other users' projects for more inspiration!
Parents: connect to your child’s account and learn how to build together
Educators: find resources for engineering challenges and track student progress
Mentors: guide students as they build engineering design challenges
We work with scientists and engineers to create design challenges inspired by their inventions.
You learn about the science behind the challenge and try to build your own!
