Build It! has been building momentum since it debuted in February, adding new interactive LEGO activity stations and out-of-this-world examples of some of the best LEGO art in the country as it goes. Now, for the third and final phase, the Science Center has added four new interactive simple machine exhibits developed by Los Angeles-based LEGO expert Adam Ward, the host of “Brick x Brick” on YouTube’s Soulpancake channel, and a special exhibit developed by sponsor ArcelorMittal.
Guests of all ages will enjoy his interactive exhibits that show how LEGOs can move using brick levers, wheels and axles, pulleys and the Archimedes screw. Each exhibit provides a unique opportunity for guests to interact with Ward’s creations, as well as use LEGOs to build their own simple machines.
