Exploring Ancient Native American Technologies

Engineer It!

Native Americans have always used science and engineering to create effective tools, homes, clothing, cooking methods and more - passing this knowledge down through generations. Many of these innovations are still being used today!

Build a shelter, design a boat, weave a shoe, or invent a fishing tool! Try out your own engineering skills while discovering technologies designed by Oregon’s first engineers. Join us to explore a collection of Oregon artifacts from the museum and engage in fun, hands-on engineering challenges.
