Toyota Engineering Theater


sciencestageGet ready to enter the exciting world of engineering with a theater experience like no other at the Detroit Science Center’s Toyota Engineering Theater.

This immersive, multi-media theater will take you on an interactive journey into the world of real-life engineers, while incorporating state-of-the-art digital video, dramatic computer-controlled lighting, a 43-foot projection screen and active seating.


Our fall show, Engineering Adrenaline, features fast-paced, heart-pumping action that will literally take you for a ride as you explore the fascinating world of engineering.

Meet an Olympic kayaker who designed and built the world’s largest man-made whitewater rafting park; a NASA Jet Propulsion Lab engineer who is working on a 6-legged robotic rover for the next moon mission; and a Toyota engineer who will take you off-road and on the race track as she designs an air delivery system for the Tundra full-size pickup truck. Audiences will be rocked in their seats, as wind blows and water spritzes throughout this one-of-a-kind show.

Showtimes are:

Wed. - Fri. : 10 a.m., 12 p.m. 3 p.m.
Sat. & Sun. : 12 p.m., 2 p.m., 4 p.m.
