Helping to forge future engineers, scientists, and leaders!

Learning should be fun!  We use exciting hands-on projects, summer camps and classes to stimulate interest in science and engineering.

Big changes are underway at our facility! The Robotic Solutions 6-Axis CNC machine is opening up a whole new level of fabrication capability.  Our Robot Gladiators arena protects spectators during intense battles.  The H.A.B. classroom gives us a tightly controlled work space for our youngest students.  You might even get to see some of our past favorite devices getting prepped for a new tour of duty.

Recent renovations have increased the quantity and quality of Newton’s Attic’s classroom and work space to 6,000 square feet of higher quality space. The open warehouse has been climate controlled and made into a multi-purpose area that can be partitioned into smaller learning areas or converted into open space to house large projects or events as needed.

Newton's Attic

We took a tree stump and turned it into... YODA! Take a look at this video to see how he was created, you'll get a chance to bid on YODA during our fundraiser on Wednesday August 8th from 5:30-7:30pm. Admission is free and childcare will be available at no cost during the event! #newtonsattic

Newton's Attic

Wargames: SwordCraft: There is much more science and engineering to a sword than meets the eye, and skillfully using one takes considerable practice. In this class, students will make wooden model swords and learn about engineering related topics such as balance, angular inertia and momentum, and center of percussion. Then, after padding simple, pvc swords with foam and outfitting participants with proper safety gear, students learn basic sword handling and sparring techniques. The camp will end with a friendly, tournament-style competition of swordplay using their padded swords and shields. So, get ready to put on your suit of armor, learn some new skills and engage in some high-energy medieval fun in this creative class.
{grades 5+}

Newton's Attic

Please join us on Wednesday, August 8 for an evening of cocktails, food, drink and reminiscing about our 20 years of service to the Lexington community. During the evening, we will have a silent auction with items made by our students, exclusive Newton Attic experiences and more.

Newton’s Attic is a place where students and teachers come together to test ideas and break the boundaries of normal engineering classes. We encourage young children to put themselves into their projects and think of different solutions. We work hard to build a diverse staff of engineering and math and science professionals who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty or to blow something up.

We couldn’t accomplishment our mission of giving everyone a chance at engineering without your help. As the night winds down, you may ask yourself how you can help Newton’s Attic grow for the next 20 years. Our programs, staff and need for resources are growing, and any donation, large or small, will impact our mission to help students and teachers. We will have a giving moment to share our stories with you, to share our students’ stories with you and to show you where your dollars are going as you contribute towards Lexington’s best kept engineering secret.

Admission to this adult event is free, and childcare is provided on site. So come out and enjoy a cocktail, dinner and a few fun surprises as we celebrate Newton’s Attic then and now and prepare for the future of engineering!

RSVP to NewtonsAtticRSVP@gmail.com with the names of the adults and the names and ages of the children in your group so that we can better plan our hospitality and childcare.
