Bringing Little Builders to Las Vegas
Lied Discovery Children’s Museum invites young children to become real movers and shakers when they explore Little Builders, an interactive exhibition based on the concepts of construction, motion and simple machines. Created and toured by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, Little Builders will open in the Donor Gallery at Lied Discovery Children’s Museum on January 30, 2010.
Donning little hard hats and construction vests, children ages 2-7 will be able to create, play and learn with Little Builders. They can hand-operate a pulley and conveyer belt to explore cause and effect, turn the wheels of a crane to hook, lift and move objects and materials, or build with Duplo® blocks and gears.
“The nature of the Little Builders exhibition really allows creativity to flourish,” museum Deputy Director Tifferney White said. “Children are encouraged to use the activities in their own ways. That personalized learning experience is why this exhibition is such a perfect fit at Lied Discovery Children’s Museum.”
Little Builders will be on display January 30 through May 9. The museum’s renovated Donor Gallery is located just inside the new private museum entrance, west of the cone in the front of the building.
Lied Discovery Children’s Museum is located at 833 Las Vegas Blvd. North in downtown Las Vegas and features over 100 interactive exhibits based on science, art and culture for children and families. For more information, visit www.ldcm.org or call (702) 382-3445.
