New Exhibits At South Coast Museum Created By High School Engineering Students

More than a dozen teenagers are trying some brand new high tech interactive exhibits which just opened at a South Coast museum. But, the teens here aren’t just playing with the exhibits at Santa Barbara’s MOXI: The Wolf Museum of Exploration and Innovation. The high school students are fine tuning them, because they are the designers and builders.

The six exhibits are the result of a year and a half long collaboration between MOXI and the Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy.

The exhibits help make science interactive, and present concepts in ways that make you feel like you are playing a game.

The Engineering Academy showcase is open through April 14th at the museum.
