Step into the shoes of video game developers, music producers, roller coaster designers, and more to discover how science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts solve design challenges. Explore Design Zone’s three thematic zones, all highlighting the importance of science and mathematical thinking in areas critical to building creativity and innovation: art, music, and engineering. Throughout the zones, you’ll put your creative problem solving skills to the test to see, hear, and watch STEM principles in action: Use patterns to build 3D towers, apply math to create the rhythms of your own hit song, and tweak the slopes of a roller coaster to construct the most thrilling ride!
