Visiting exhibition

Balancing Act to May 14 to September 4, 2011

(Produced by the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History)

Keeping your balance and losing your balance are a big part of growing up.  Understanding how balance plays a role in science, engineering, cultural traditions, and art is fundamental to learning.  The Balancing Act exhibit weaves a tapestry of multicultural and science-based activities for children to experience different aspects of balance firsthand, including constructing a mobile from fanciful shapes, levers and counterweights; walking a tightrope; playing stacking games with featherweight blocks; operating a teeter-totter for plush toys; building a balance and motion machine of runways and ramps; and creating artwork based on ideas of harmony, scale, and aesthetic balance.  Co-sponsored by Astoria Federal Savings.
