The Works Museum is known for hands-on engineering field trips for kids – but now we’re offering team-building experiences for adults! These hands-on workshops engage participants in collaboration, communication, innovation, problem solving, and adapting to change.

Get out of the office and come engineer together at The Works Museum.

What to expect at your Corporate Field Trip:
– You’ll select from a variety of workshops that engage participants in collaboration, communication, innovation, problem solving, and adapting to change.
– Your workshop will be led by one of our experienced STEM facilitators, who will lead your team through a high-energy engineering design challenge and post-activity discussion.
– You’ll have a direct impact on kids in our community.
– Each corporate field trip supports our Gateway program, delivering programming for schools and families with economic need.

– Workshops are ideal for groups of 10-30; groups larger than 30 could be accommodated with concurrent workshops. The MAKERSHOP workshop has a capacity constraint of 30.
– The Works Museum does not have catering available; however, you are welcome to bring in your own food and beverages.
– If you’re incorporating a workshop in a larger off site or team-building day, a list of local establishments is available. The Works Museum is located 10 minutes from the Mall of America, if you’re seeking a broader selection of restaurants and supplemental activities.
– If desired, The Works Museum can work with you to extend your field trip to incorporate additional programming led by you or a volunteer project for The Works.

Workshop Options:
– Catapults – Use hammers, drills, and saws to build your own
catapult. Collaborate with team mates to problem-solve or customize your catapult. Test your contraption to see how far you can fling objects.
– Maze Engineering – Work in pairs to design and construct your own maze, pinball, or pachinko games. Respond to process shocks and adapt your game. Then play in the arcade you’ve designed.
– Mini Golf – Work in teams to design and build your own mini golf holes using mixed building supplies and variable constraints. Then play the whole course.
– MAKERSHOP – Spend your field trip in our makerspace, The Workshop. Participants select a project and work together, using the Museum’s tools and supplies, to make their take-home creations. Select from soldered pendants (great for use on necklaces or keychains), origami lanterns, or wooden cell-phone speakers.

Pricing: $1500 for up to 20 participants, $15 per additional participant.
