MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition in Fort Worth
The Discovery Channel’s Emmy®-nominated series comes to life to uncover truths behind popular myths by mixing scientific method with gleeful curiosity and old-fashioned ingenuity in MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition, which made its way to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History Saturday, October 11, 2014.
Guests of the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History will have the chance to learn about myths, the MythBusters, and what experimenting is all about by participating in a series of fun, hands-on experiences and live demonstrations. Experiments cover topics such as flight, friction, gravity, speed and combustion.
The exhibition showcases:
* Blueprint Room – Based on the real-life operations room of the MythBusters’ iconic set, this room acts as an introduction to MythBusting and is filled with gadgets, props, video and, of course, blueprints used by the hosts to explore myths on the show.
* Workshop – This is the place where guests turn into investigators and use real science to test myths. Guest discover whether they get more wet running versus walking in the rain and find out if toast really does always land buttered-side down.
* Live MythBusters Demonstration Stage – Here guests have the opportunity to view and participate in live science demonstrations that dissect myths with the help of a team of energetic MythBusting facilitators.
“Seeing the MythBusters’ enthusiasm about the exhibition, we are very excited about it coming to COSI,” said Amy Noble Seitz, founder and CEO of Exhibits Development Group. “We truly hope this exhibition will spur scientific curiosity, thought and experimentation for all ages.”
We were thrilled to attend a media preview of the exhibit, and I’ll post more information about the specific attractions and fun atmosphere in another blog post in the near future. 🙂 My family, from age 2 to age 34, loved it.
