Travel With Legos This Summer at the Science Center

The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium is hosting their summer exhibit, “Travel Adventure” featuring LEGO Bricks! The fun starts May 5 and will continue to build through September 23.

The interactive exhibit will take visitors on an extraordinary adventure to exotic locations through all kinds of terrain. Guests of all ages will use their creative-thinking skills to plan and build vehicles to move through mountains, jungles, oceans, deserts and more while learning about the history of travel and imagining the future of transportation. Families are invited to dress up as pilots, sailors, racers and world explorers as they take the wheel of life-sized toy LEGO vehicles and engage in dynamic play.

“We are definitely excited to host this exhibit over the summer,” said Kate Arrizza, CEO of the Science Center. “We want to ‘open every mind to science,’ and this is the perfect opportunity to build a curiosity for travel and adventure for families of all ages. This exhibit will help families work together to solve problems, create a custom vehicle and explore their imaginations.”

Visitors will be able to share their creations through a photography booth set up against a destination backdrop. Visit San Francisco, Paris, Hawaii and more real-life destinations, all while learning about travel history. Guests will answer three important questions: “Where will you go,” “How will you get there” and “What will you build?” Duplo bricks will be on hand for younger guests.

The mission of the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium is to “open every mind to science” and the indoor/outdoor venue features more than 100 hands-on educational exhibits, a 10,000 gallon fresh and salt water aquarium- featuring both local and exotic marine life, a digital planetarium, conservation research station, Florida exhibit hall, Pre-K focused “Discovery Center,” an interactive Everglades exhibit and the 18-hole Conservation Course – an outdoor putting course with science-focused education stations.
