Engineering Weekends at Museum of Discovery and Science
February 17 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm$2 – $65
Think, construct, test and improve your engineering skills with MODS’ Engineering Weekends on Saturdays, from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., and on Sundays, from noon – 5 p.m.
Devise and manufacture various structures, learn about the first steps of engineering and discover what it takes to become an engineer. Tinker with tools and get hands-on with the building and design of a resilient city. For young engineers (ages 0-6), assemble structures with LEGO® bricks, DUPLO® blocks or MAGNA-TILES® and use various materials to experiment with erecting super tall towers.
Then, find inspiration at a showing of Cities of the Future, a captivating new IMAX® experience debuting in South Florida on February 16. This film, presented by MacGillivray Freeman Films and the American Society of Civil Engineers, unveils the groundbreaking innovations shaping our world. From solar energy beamed from space to flying cars, smart buildings and eco-friendly infrastructure, witness the transition to a sustainable future. Narrated by John Krasinski, the film takes you on a journey to cities like Amsterdam, Los Angeles and Singapore, showcasing real progress and the human ingenuity behind it. Join the movement towards a brighter, greener future.
The wave of excitement at MODS continues with Voyage to the Deep, a new traveling exhibit. “Seas” the day and embark on the legendary Nautilus submarine with Captain Nemo for an interactive journey of underwater exploration!
Experience South Florida’s award-winning attraction featuring 150,000 square feet of dynamic science exhibits, an outdoor science park, a live animal collection, a rotating schedule of science shows, learning labs, café, store and a grand atrium featuring the Great Gravity Clock, a 52-foot-tall kinetic energy sculpture; the largest clock in Florida. The showpiece of the museum since 1993, this unique timepiece is one of only three in the world.
