With three levels of physical challenges that are meant to push you to your next level, there is something for everyone to try in Power Play! As you jump, stretch, crank, dance, climb and crawl your way through this exhibition, you will explore strength, flexibility, and endurance. Record your score after each challenge and learn important tips for maintaining good physical health while discovering ways you can continue to work on all three at home.
Power Play utilizes power scores at each activity station to show children that the human body has a physiological response to exercise. Regular exercise helps the cardiovascular system work more efficiently and has many health benefits.
“My kids love to climb in the Power Tower. They like to start at the bottom and race each other to the very top.”
Climb through all three stories of the Power Tower. There are many different paths you can take, but not all paths lead to an exit.
Follow the dance steps to get the high score or create your own moves and groove with the beat!
Watch as the on-screen skeleton moves to your moves, popping the bubbles, and avoiding the bees on the screen, moving your whole body along the way!
This exhibit was made possible by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) from the National Center for Research Resources, a component of the National Institutes of Health and by our generous sponsors, Jason and Ginny Endecott.
