Program Description

Event Details

Join the Legler Benbough Teen IDEA Lab for Maker Mondays, every 2nd and 4th Monday from 4-5 pm. Each session the IDEA Lab team will focus on a different design and creativity project and will highlight a piece of awesome technology found within our amazing lab. This program is free and open to all teens aged 12-18 (aka 7th graders to 12th graders). 

Come join the Legler Benbough Teen IDEA Lab to learn the science behind how plants absorb nutrients from the ground as we grow our own magic crystal trees inside a petri dish using everyday house supplies. You can take your tree with you to watch grow at home, or leave it overnight at the IDEA Lab and come back to see how much your tree has transformed! This program free and is for ages 12 to 18.


The Legler Benbough Teen IDEA Lab is now partially re-opened on Mondays to Thursday. For more information, visit:
