Explore 'The World We Create' Traveling Exhibit at the National Corvette Museum January 9 - April 18, 2010!

The National Corvette Museum has hosted dinosaurs, dresses, Corvairs and even creatures of the deep... but now the Museum is hosting a hands-on exhibit that will entertain both kids and kids at heart. THE WORLD WE CREATE Traveling Exhibit blends concepts of science and technology and translates them into hands-on, heads-up activities for all ages. The exhibit, on loan from the Louisville Science Center, offers captivating designs, informative graphics and exciting activity stations to create a one-of-a-kind experience for our visitors.

“We enjoy bringing in exhibits that appeal to a younger generation, and have an educational aspect that attracts school groups. We have found this is a great way to expose young people to the Corvette brand and start growing enthusiasts from a very young age,” said Stephanie Morrill, Membership and Admissions Manager.

The 2,500 square foot exhibit celebrates human ingenuity through hands-on exploration of our material world. Imagination guides children through three themes from the manufactured world: Construction Zone, Transit Hub and Tech Works. At each stop, they’ll experience how human creativity solves problems and advances technology. Activities promote concepts like teamwork, problem solving, and communication. The temporary exhibit is on display January 9 through April 18 and is included with museum admission.
