Distance Learning

The Museum’s Distance Learning programs bring our educators into your classrooms through live-streamed programs.

Why Engineering?

45 minutes. Grades 4–6. Free, registration required.

Ever wonder how buildings stand up or what makes the electronics in our homes work? Join the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. for an exploration of engineering and the ways engineers affect the places we live, work, and play. Students will hear engineers describe their design process and explain the engineering principles behind projects they have completed in D.C. Through several interactive elements, students will learn about the importance of creative problem solving and careers in engineering.
