Water World

Client: Discovery Children's Museum

Location: Las Vegas, NV

Installed: October 2013

The Water World gallery at the Discovery Children's Museum in Las Vegas educates children about the power of water. Visitors play and work with water in a variety of hands-on ways: launching balls into winding tracks, guiding boats through a lock system, fitting together plastic pipes to redirect flow, feeding a vortex or using air blowers to create currents. Visitors also interact with a model of the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and the new Bypass Bridge. The Hoover Dam model water tank and related activities demonstrate where the region’s water comes from, how the dam works, how electricity is generated, and the real-life forces of water.
