Bring Engineering to Your Classroom

Teach hands-on science with simple materials.

With the engineering design process as a guide, your students will plan, build, and test their designs. They’ll document each step on Curiosity Machine, where you can create groups and add your students to see their progress.

Educators everywhere are using Curiosity Machine in:

  • K-12 classrooms
  • After school clubs
  • Family science programs
  • Makerspaces
  • Libraries, summer camps, etc.
Teacher and child build together
