Build it Big
Fourth Floor | Kirby Science Discovery Center
Build it Big is a celebration of the creativity and inventiveness of young minds with LEGO bricks, KEVA blocks, K'NEX building toys and even PVC pipes! This brand new exhibition invites kids of all ages to have fun with hands-on learning while designing, building, investigating, problem solving and evaluating scientific and design principles in action using rods, connectors, gears, tires and hubs at interactive building stations.
Find your inner builder and join us in combining science, art and great ideas to create your own unique contraptions. Let your imagination run wild in this full-on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) gallery.
Four Unique Building Zones:
- Build-a-racecar and track area

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) is an educational approach to learning that uses science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue and critical thinking. The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders and learners of the 21st century! STEAM removes limitations and replaces them with wonder, critique, inquiry and innovation.
