January through mid-May only: Host a KEVA party!
Rent the Science Discovery Museum after hours for your party while our KEVA traveling exhibit is here! Design! Build! KEVA! is a collection 15,000 identical planks and is a combination art gallery and construction lab. KEVA Planks are identical hardwood maple blocks that are ¼” x 3/4” x 4 ½”. Every piece is precision cut so they fit together perfectly and create surprisingly stable structures. The magic is in the simplicity: no glue or connectors are used, and every piece is the same so you don’t spend time searching for one specific piece to complete your vision.
About a dozen beautiful KEVA structures will be on display throughout the museum to inspire ideas for visitors to build on their own. With KEVA, everyone builds at their own skill level so the entire family usually gets in on the action--working as a group or on individual projects.
Design! Build! KEVA! will be at the Science Discovery Museum from January 10 through May 18. Rent the building during this time and experience the KEVA exhibit--and the rest of the museum--privately with your family and friends. You can also schedule a staff-facilitated KEVA Challenge for an additional fee. Learn more.
