Building Boom with KEVA (Knowledge-Exploration-Visual Arts)

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 21-09-2012 06-01-2013 15 Building Boom with KEVA (Knowledge-Exploration-Visual Arts) Get ready to explore the simple and complex possibilities of construction as you move from the drawing board to the construction crew. Building Boom with KEVA encourages you to conceive, then build, the design project of your dreams -- bridges, skyscrapers, castles, airplanes, trestles, spirals and more. You?ll develop a first-hand understanding of the physical forces at work in the design process as you apply principles of balance, proportion and geometry to your design. Building Boom with KEVA brings out the designer, architect and engineer in each of us as you problem solve and think in three dimension. Uniform in size, KEVA planks use only gravity ? no glue or connectors. You'll dabble with physics to achieve balance, proportion and stability. Stumped for a design project? Draw inspiration from 50 permanent building models on display. This exhibit runs through January 6, 2013. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=115988 Long Island Children's Museum true DD/MM/YYYY
