Smithsonian Spark!Lab is where Magic City Discovery Center visitors become inventors and innovators. It is a unique learning space where visitors are challenged to invent solutions to real-world problems. Older children, families, and learning groups are given opportunities to explore their inventive creativity – to create, innovate, collaborate, and problem-solve – through hands-on inventing activities. Spark!Lab encourages 21st century skill building and gives children the freedom to put their own ideas into action. The Magic City Discovery Center is only 1 of 11 museums to have a Smithsonian Spark!Lab.
