Out and About in NWA

The Amazeum team has been busy the past few weekends, bringing our special brand of creative, high-flying, soaring activities to share with the public. Kicking off our summer public outreach season, we encouraged kids to be creative with their recyclables, and give them new life as part of a collaborative recycled cityscape. The imagination and creativity was inspiring, as visitors to the Amazeum booth created everything from skyscrapers and vehicles to schools and airplanes.

At Touch-A-Truck we spent the day making and launching rockets. This simple air-powered kid-powered rocket was a crowd pleaser, showing that you don't need to be a rocket scientist to touch the sky.

For those who preferred to be creative from the ground, we brought our KEVA planks to 21C for a "Block Party". What can you create with 8,000 blocks? Just about anything you can dream up. These simple wooden planks are just the right size and shape to stack and arrange into a number of architectural and artistic creations. One of the best parts of the event was the fact that adults and kids (of many different ages) both spent time building together for extended periods of time. Erik even took things to another level - literally - climbing onto a scissors lift and building a multi-story tower that was left on display for the following week.
