Nikola Tesla was a genius ahead of his time and a prolific inventor who did some of his most exciting experiments right here in Colorado Springs. His name is synonymous with learning through hands-on experience. 

Tesla’s Toolbox continues this time-honored tradition through a year-long series of space-inspired, STEM-themed workshops allowing kids and families to get a close-up, hands-on experience of space and science concepts which turn science into learning, learning into fun, and fun into passion. 

Tesla's Toolbox is designed for ages 7 and up and is meant to encourage creativity and exploration in STEM fields - science, technology, engineering and math - sparking children’s imaginations, creativity, and desire to want to continue experimenting after their trip to the Discovery Center is over. 

There’s no better way to learn and love space and STEM than through the feel of it in your own hands!
