EXPLORE THE INNER WORKINGS OF TOYS AT THE SCIENCENTER!

If your parents never let you break open your Etch A Sketch® to find out how it works, or if you’ve been wondering how to stop your toddler’s push toy from making such an infernal racket, you’ll love Toys: The Inside Story.

This new exhibition illustrates the simple mechanisms commonly found in toys, and lets visitors create their own toy-like combinations of gears, pulleys, linkages, cams, and circuits.

The exhibition was developed by the Montshire Museum of Science in Norwich, Vt., as part of the Traveling Exhibits at Museums of Science (TEAMS) collaborative. Funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
