The World We Create

The World We Create

A collection of interactive exhibits designed to engage visitors in investigative science. Build, test, and revise as you conduct experiments to test your engineering prowess. Construct a self-supporting arch, explore the strength of various bridge designs, or race a ball through a maze to find the best way to get to Kentucky Science Center.

The World We Create highlights

  • Build It Up: Refurbished and reinstalled in January of 2017, this classic Kentucky Science Center favorite allows visitors to experience the mechanics of a real crane, and the challenges of construction.
  • Whisper Dishes: Share a secret conversation from different sides of the room with these acoustic mirrors that reflect and focus the sound waves of your whispers to cover great distances!
  • Theremin: Activate your creativity and learn about the physics of proximity sensors with an early electronic musical instrument played without any physical contact!
  • Ohio River Bridges Project: See how projects like the Lincoln and Lewis & Clark Bridges blend Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math, to create beautiful and powerful structures that change lives. Test different bridge designs, discover the science behind their construction, and control a timelapse video of the construction of both bridges.
