Railroad STEM Programs

Railroad STEM Programs

STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) activities offered at the National Railroad Museum cover a variety of different fields. 

Check out the Dwight D. Eisenhower locomotive and learn about aerodynamics using our wind tunnel and figure out which shape has the least resistance. Discover mass and velocity by performing a crash test on model locomotives and trains. Learn how the human eye works and see how color affects how safe our surroundings are. And if you think a train can’t sneak up on you, guess again by using our interactive track crossing simulator. The program is usually topped off with a bridge engineering activity or a high-speed rail design project.

The program is available January through October. Group sizes often range from 10 to 50 children.


$15 per person. A minimum of 10 individuals are required to book.
