Tech City features 12 exhibits comprised of 20 activity stations that teaches visitors what it takes to build a city. The exhibits present challenges that can be readily solved using an engineering approach. With hands-on activities, multi-media computers, and a video, the exhibition appeals to a wide variety of learning styles. Exhibits are designed to include activities for both younger and older museum visitors. Some examples of this exhibit include:
• A separation station where visitors can "clean" the water with a hydraulic system using filters to separate plastic beads that differ in size and density.
• Use computers to optimize traffic flow by adjusting the timing of traffic lights at several intersections.
• Prevent the creek from flooding Tech City by building a gravity dam using metal blocks.
• Use an interactive program to design a bridge, then experiment at a model bridge "build and test" station.
