If you're looking for a fun new exhibit to get the kids thinking and creating, this summer, check out Design Quest at Lawrence Hall of Science in the Berkeley Hills. Kids use creativity and engineering skills to build protypes and test them. Things like making moving sculptures, stop motion stories, create flying machines to test in a wind tunnel, design and drive your own car, build a bridge, and more. You'll find engineers and college students helping out and the kids can work with them on the projects.
When: now through September 2, 2013; open 10-5 daily and most holidays.
Where: Lawrence Hall of Science, Berkeley
Cost: free with admission which is $6-12
