Design Quest Exhibit at the Lawrence Hall of Science
Set out on a quest to build the future in the Design Quest exhibit, open daily 10am-5pm through Sept 2. Create unique moving sculptures with motions determined by a lever system you design, tell stories through stop-motion animation, build flying machines and try them out in vertical wind tubes, test model cars, and design bridges. Come up with ideas, build prototypes and see if your designs rise to the challenge -- just like a real engineer. Celebrate summer with special Summer Fun Day events every Wednesday through August 14 from noon to 2pm. Admission: $6-$12, 3 years and younger, free.
