Kids love to build things, and break them when they are done. Designing and building structures can help kids think more about design, as well as the physics behind buildings.
The Ann Arbor Hands on Museum exhibit “Block party” may be one of the simplest exhibits ever. Hundreds of red foam blocks are provided in a gigantic exhibit space on the museum’s first floor.
Then kids and adults are free to build houses, fortresses, towers, and at the end of the process, knock it all back down again. The exhibit is free with museum admission and runs until the end of September 2010.
