The Building Gallery is an interactive construction zone filled with a variety of materials, images, and experiences that explore building! Beyond exploring the science, technology, engineering, and math involved in constructing structures, our Building Gallery provides opportunities to explore the artistic aspects of architecture and design inherent in every type of structure found around the world!

How adults Can support Discovery, Creativity, Exploration, and play in Building

  • Talk about different things that you could build! Take inspiration from everything around you, from dinosaurs to ancient columns there are lots of things to explore!

  • Let the child lead the design and building process. Follow in on their visions!

  • Talk about trial and error! Let them try building something, if it falls talk about what happened and how you could do things differently so it is stronger the next time!
