Museum of Discovery Invites Public to Take Apart Big Things, Take Apart Small Things at Constructive Destruction
From blenders to vacuums, see a new side to everyday items and find out what makes them work at “Constructive Destruction”, February 21-23 at the Museum of Discovery.
Celebrate National Engineer’s Week as you learn about every day objects by taking them apart. Engineers develop new technology that helps us work, live and play. Here’s your chance to look inside their creations.
Visitors will use tools ranging from screwdrivers to hammers and discover the hidden mechanics of familiar objects. Through a hands-on experience, visitors can take apart items to learn the science of engineering and discover the challenges engineers face when designing products.
