New in Play Power!

Check out the most recent addition to our Play Power exhibit – a playful building activity that invites visitors to invent imaginative creations. Using flexible and brightly colored pieces that stick to surfaces and to each other with suction cups, kids and families can connect and stack to form intriguing sculptures and other creative constructions.

We’re committed to providing a range of activities that promote different types of play and to keeping fresh by frequently changing elements of our exhibits.  This addition enhances existing Play Power activities with more opportunities for creativity, artistic expression and tactile exploration. 

Says Exhibits Director Robin Meisner:
“The exhibits team often experiments with new activities for children and their grown-ups, and we love to hear your opinions about them.  We think these add a nice "pop" to Play Power - what's your impression?  After you test them out, please share your thoughts with one of our Play Guides or Experience Coordinators.”

Experience Coordinators Katie and Seth gave it a serious test and made some impressive “suction constructions”!

“In the three years I've been visiting, the exhibits have changed, making it new each time.”
