Try It Truck

The Try It Truck is BADM’s engineering-lab-on-wheels, and an exciting way to share our engaging STEM programming. Bring the Try It Truck to your school, library, or community organization to provide hands-on early engineering experiences to young learners.

Engineering Extravaganza

Young engineers explore a series of hands-on stations featuring engineering challenges and a variety of tools, from hand tools (such as hammers and pliers) to high-tech tools (such as a laser cutter and 3-D printer). Through individual and collaborative activities both on and off the Try It Truck, students use BADM’s engineering design process of “Think, Make, Try,” as they creatively solve problems using math and science.
