Design Lab, a new permanent exhibition consisting of five distinct "pods", will allow visitors to engage in activities, experiments and challenges that provide a deeper understanding of engineering and the design process. Video produced by Really Useful Media.
A project of NYSCI's Verizon Center for STEM Learning, Design Lab explores how design-based learning can give teachers new strategies for engaging all types of learners.
Design-based learning holds great potential to reshape classroom teaching and learning, making students active participants. Design-based learning means students don't just read science textbooks, they independently conduct science experiments; recording their results and drawing conclusions based on data and research.
