Can you design a structure that can withstand gravity? Build a bridge you can cross. Reconstruct the world-famous Roman arches. Stack blocks to form a gravity-defying cantilever. Marvel at the mechanics of pulleys, gears, and other labor-saving devices.
Play with perception by experimenting with lenses, mirrors, prisms, and light. Walk into a room where children are bigger than adults, then step into an alcove of infinite reflections. You won’t believe your eyes!
A space for you to shape! Children can construct their surroundings using available materials, like mats, fabric, and giant foam blocks. Encourage creativity, spontaneity, and team-building.
Let your imagination run wild! Explore physics, engineering and construction in a whole new light.
