Featured/Traveling Exhibit

Now through September 4th

What does it take to create an addictive and fun video game? How many beats per second does a DJ need to get bodies moving on the dance floor? What goes behind creating a roller coaster or a skate park that produces the most fun and biggest thrills? Discover the secrets behind how videogame developers, music producers, roller coaster designers, and other creative problem solvers do what they do in McWane Science Center’s new exhibition, Design Zone, opening May 27th. Design Zone is presented at McWane through the generous support of Wells Fargo and will be on exhibit through September 4th.

Design Zone is a highly interactive, hands-on exhibition where visitors can explore a variety of creative concepts to learn the processes and tools needed to create a successful design. Design Zone is organized into three thematic zones, all highlighting the importance of science and mathematical thinking in areas critical to building creativity and innovation: art, music, and engineering.
