Join University of Minnesota science and engineering students and faculty at The Works Museum for the museum’s gooiest, messiest, most electrifying event of the year! Enjoy live demos, amazing projects, and more with The Works and science and engineering partners from all over the Twin Cities.

Tech Fest offers a unique chance for families to learn about engineering and technology from real engineers and scientists.

Everyone is encouraged to touch, try, and have fun.
