|No doubt about the current exhibition|
|Who wouldn’t want these two for classmates|
Entering the main exhibit, you are greeted by Mike and Sully in the Rigging area. Here you learn that in order to make a character move you have to…well…move their skeleton…and deform their skin (deform their skin, sounds awful but the workstation is a lot of fun.)
|How can she move her arms like that?|
There were stations where you could create stop action video.
|Budding filmmaker at work|
Another where you could play with color and texture to change the appearance of surfaces.
|Lots of fun changing surfaces in Ramone’s garage|
And a very hands-on table where you could build model robots from a variety of pieces.
|So many choices how can you choose|
These are only a few of the activity areas in this entertaining (and educational) exhibit. There is even a free educator guide that can be downloaded from the Telus World of Science website. It contains some fun activity sheets that we used as a homeschooling family but, I think, any parent could use depending on the interest level of their children.
