Just because it’s summer, doesn’t mean your kids should stop learning. With the Ontario Science Centre’s latest exhibition, MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition, learning about science has never been more cool – or fun!
MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition uses interactive technology and a hands-on approach to explore the world of science using the same methods as the hosts of Discovery Channel’s Emmy-nominated series MythBusters.
With gadgets, props and blueprints from the show, exciting hands-on experiments and entertaining live demonstrations, the exhibition is all about exploring the difference between science fiction and science fact, in a manner that makes learning about science fun for kids and adults alike.
In ‘The Workshop’ visitors can engage in fun experiments on over a dozen topics, expanding upon the myths seen on the MythBusters show, with a few never-before-seen myths saved just for the exhibition.
- Use Newton’s first law of motion to pull a tablecloth out from underneath a full place setting without disturbing a dish
- Test your reaction time to see if you really could dodge a bullet like people do all the time in the movies
- Discover if running in the rain will really keep you drier than walking in the rain
- And other fun (and educational) activities like changing like a superhero, hanging from a cliff, blind driving and much more.
MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition is open daily until September 13, 2015. Tickets to the exhibition, which includes general admission to the Science Centre’s general admission halls is $27 for adults, $21 for seniors 65+ and youth 13-17 and $15.50 for children 3-12.
