Discover Science through play

Professor Pennypickle has a great love for engines and all things mechanical!

We figure you might be interested in his collection AND seeing how his fantastic engine models work, so look for some new things to check out in the Workshop.

There's lots of Engine Workshop merchandise that dads and grandpas (and anyone who is a fan of engine stuff) will love! Ask about our Low Temp Sterling Engine models that work with the steam from your cup of coffee... a great Father's Day gift or a nifty desk item that's sure to impress. 

Your scout (Boys or Girls) or home school group can join us to help fulfill their badge or curriculum requirements while having a great time at the Workshop! Be sure to call 951-308-6376 for more details.

The following subjects are available at this time:
