The Neville Public Museum

School Day Off: Hop To It


When school is out, the Neville is in!

Using the Engineering Adventures curriculum, students will participate in a series of hands-on projects and challenges that will teach them about the engineering process and how those skills are applied in the real world.

Engineering Adventures is a program developed by the Museum of Science (Boston) that introduces children to engineering and the Engineering Design Process.
