Kohl’s

Design It! Lab

Build, create, and have fun together!

Bring the whole family to the Kohl’s Design It! Lab and make wonderfully creative projects that you can take home.

The Kohl’s Design It! Lab is fun for the whole family!

Projects can take anywhere from 5-45 minutes, and a Kohl’s Design It! Lab team member will guide you through the use of tools like hot glue guns, heat sealers, and vacuum-formers.

Each month the Kohl’s Design It! Lab staff develops a new theme and new projects, so be sure to visit often!

Educators

We know that educators are always looking for ways to enhance their everyday curriculum. That’s where we can help!

The Kohl’s Design It! Lab offers exciting programming through either onsite interdisciplinary workshops offered as part of your field trip visit to Discovery World, or as the Kohl’s Design! Mobile lab –an onsite teaching lab that brings the learning experience to your classroom!

Both of these options will give your students a unique learning opportunity through these hands-on design experiences.
