Who Forted

Who Forted

Who Forted: An Engineering Challenge encourages guests to repurpose ordinary items in extraordinary ways. Using abstract and found objects, you can explore basic engineering, geometry, and design concepts while tackling unique build challenges that are sure to get the whole family involved in the fun.


Inside Who Forted

What can I expect during my Who Forted experience?

When you arrive in our 3rd floor gallery, you’ll find a variety of exciting building materials waiting for you. Some items you might recognize – like furniture, blankets, brooms, and doors. Some items you might not – like plumbing fittings and abstract shapes. Your job? Turn all those materials into the fort of your dreams! If you need a little inspiration, you can check out the photographs of local (and out of this world!) structures or tackle one of our build challenges.

Who can participate in Who Forted?

Who Forted is specially designed so that people of all ages and abilities can build together. In fact, we think the exhibit works even better when the whole family tackles a build challenge, sharing their unique perspectives as they work to find a solution.
