Clad in hard hats and construction vests, kids in the Builders of Tomorrow exhibit load wheelbarrows with giant Lego dacta blocks, which they then use to fill in the wooden frame of a small house. Whether they realize it or not, these budding builders are learning—working with the Legos stimulates gross and fine motor skills, and tools such as a pulley system encourage creative problem solving. This interactive, play-based style of learning extends through all 10 exhibits at The Sandbox, which keep young brains on track to one day develop advanced adult skills, such as singing all the deductions on your tax return. In addition to overseeing exhibits that cater to infants through 8-year-olds, the museum's staff organizes programming such as Parents Night Out, Kids Night In, field trips, and facility rentals for celebrations such as birthday parties.
