Participating in the Tulsa Engineering Challenge?

Discovery Lab can help!

  • Teams can register individually for workshops at Discovery Lab
  • Parents and students can attend our drop-in workshops

Our most popular option, weekend team workshops, include two-hours of facilitation for teams of 2-4 students at Discovery Lab led by an educator AND judges from the Tulsa Engineering Challenge. During these workshops, teams will have the opportunity to begin a concept design and model of their project that they can build upon. Plus, some supplies are included with team workshop registration.

Tulsa Engineering Challenge is a hands-on opportunity for youth 4th – 12th grades to explore problem solving, designing and construction of devices that accomplish tasks.

Stay tuned for information regarding our 2021 workshops.
