    Tech City

    February 8, 2014 to May 11, 2014

     

    Tech City features 12 exhibits comprised of 20 activity stations that teaches visitors what it takes to build a city. The exhibits present challenges that can be readily solved using an engineering approach. With hands-on activities, multi-media computers, and a video, the exhibition appeals to a wide variety of learning styles. Exhibits are designed to include activities for both younger and older museum visitors.  Some examples of this exhibit include:

     

     

     

              A separation station where visitors can "clean" the water with a hydraulic system using filters to separate plastic beads that differ in size and density.

     

     

     

              Use computers to optimize traffic flow by adjusting the timing of traffic lights at several intersections.

     

     

              Prevent the creek from flooding Tech City by building a gravity dam using metal blocks.

     

     

              Use an interactive program to design a bridge, then experiment at a model bridge "build and test" station.

     

     

    And more!
