"Making Design Lab" is a short documentary that follows SITU Studio as they design, fabricate, and install a series of workshop spaces into the New York Hall of Science’s main 10,000sf exhibition space. The project, Design Lab, is a new model for science education that foregrounds STEM education and project-based learning. This innovative approach is materialized in a series of five exhibits created to support visitors in a creative design process. Each space is designed to be flexible and to support problem ideation and displaying results. Inspired by the DIY ethos of the Maker Movement, Design Lab provides a place in which visitors can experiment, iterate and display the results of their work.
