Lafayette, Colorado – Build it square, build it strong.  Build it curved, build it sticky.  Build it together, build it big.  Build It WOW!  Creativity and engineering skills are unleashed in the revamped Build It WOW! Exhibit now on display at WOW! Children’s Museum.  While exploring the exhibit, children and families will learn how different shapes form the basic building blocks of more complicated structures.  At different building stations, children can learn about geometry, spatial relationships, balance, and stability. Visitors can also explore different ways objects can connect to each other.  While creating, children practice the skills of imagining, planning, executing, and modifying ideas which sets an early foundation for STEM learning. 


Building Our World with Shapes

Choose your material - magnetic, interlocking, stacking, or sticky. Then start building!  Build it big with an interlocking block fort. Build it small with a suction cup squiggle. Build it simple with magnetic squares, or build it complex by connecting planks. Learn how special shapes make a keystone arch possible. Build your world with shapes, and Build It WOW!


“We spent time evaluating, prototyping, and redesigning the Build It WOW! Exhibit to focus on STEM learning concepts for our young visitors.  More than a construction zone, Build It WOW! reinforces concepts of shape, connection, and balance as you design and build your structures and creations,” said Elizabeth Knight, Exhibits Director, WOW! Children’s Museum.


Build It WOW! is on display through September 2017 and is generously sponsored by: Anne M. Larsen, State Farm Agent
