Build It

Build with blocks against an artful projection and see how digital tools can be used for mindful creation.

Giant Music Box 

Sequence a melody today to code a computer program tomorrow. Your child will arrange pegs in a larger-than-life music box to produce and alter melodies.

Puzzle Wall

Persist through challenges and achieve beautiful designs. Your child will use magnetic tangrams to solve puzzles and build spatial reasoning.

Pattern Wall

Discover masterful arrangements on a giant weaving wall. Your child will use a variety of materials to create and alter patterns, make predictions, and build confidence in math abilities.

Drawing Arm

Play with mechanical variables and discover artistic consequences. Experiment with levers, buttons and dials that affect the speed and direction of a giant drawing arm. Adjust one variable at a time and observe the effect your child's actions have on their spirograph masterpiece.

Design Challenge Area

Explore the properties of 2D and 3D shapes through hands-on play.

Think, Make, Try® Classroom

Right off the Try It Studio, this new classroom will soon host camps, family classes, and Connections, our award-winning STEM-based program for school children.
