The Smithsonian’s Spark!Lab opens this spring at the Anchorage Museum.
Spark!Lab is a hands-on creative lab that uses engaging activities to help kids and families learn about the history and process of invention.
Visitors spark critical thinking skills through games, conduct science experiments, explore inventors' notebooks, and invent. Activities include making a hydroponic garden, testing electric circuits, creating a flying gyroscope, and more.
Developed by the Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of American History, Spark!Lab at the Anchorage Museum is one of only a few Spark!Labs outside Washington, D.C. It is made possible through the support of the Ford Motor Company Fund.
