During Blueprints Weekend, The Kinetic King of America's Got Talent fame, will spend hours building huge, complex structures – which he will later demolish, chain-reaction style. Watch a demonstration of The Kinetic King's art here.
Also during the special weekend, explore architecture and engineering while building bridges, towers, and more. Learn how scale models are made and used in architecture and how buildings can withstand earthquakes and hurricanes. Discover: What is a cantilever? Why are arches so strong? Activity stations will provide materials to build bridges and newspaper towers, then test their strength under the weight of coins and golf balls.
Blueprints of historic buildings featured in the Miniature Railroad & Village® will also be available to see.
Blueprints Weekend activities are free with general admission costs.
Activities are offered on Saturday from 10 am – 5 pm and Sunday from 10 am – 4 pm.
