The exhibition Try This! is a hall filled with activities intended to engage a visitorís interest in design, engineering and experimentation. The exhibits are open-ended, do-it-yourself endeavors covering an array of topics. There are no right answers, only trial and error and rewarding fun.
Visitors generate patterns on the Spirograph and Giant Harmonograph and be able to press DCI coins, as well. Visitors can trace a friendís likeness onto paper using a Camera Lucida or cut screw threads and make a plastic nut. Engineer plank structures or build and test designs to fly on the Wind Table, draw cycloids, or make a stop-motion movie at Try This!
Each of the new exhibits highlighted below require visitors to read, create and make something unique. Visitors can take what they make home with them.
