Behind the Scenes of WHEELS


A few weeks ago, I posted a blog about the prototyping we were doing for some of the components of our new exhibit Wheels!

The pictures above give a behind the scenes look at the exhibit being constructed. The little plastic skate ramp we prototyped has transformed into a massive installation. Our workshop is full of wheels. I cannot wait to see the finished exhibit. It is going to be a lot of fun for our visitors and the Museum staff.

Wheels opens on February 18 and runs until May 18, 2012.  We’re doing a lot of cool things with wheels, including a vehicle test track, a magnet car park, a chance to ride a 1970s Harley Davidson chopper, and a virtual ride in our Smart Car.  Stop by the MAKESHOP to learn about wheels, make something new with wheels, and more!
