Waves of Gravity
In the Waves of Gravity exhibit, clear and colorful plastic tubes are attached with magnets to a metal wall. Visitors can arrange and rearrange the tubes in different formations and combinations, and then drop a ball in the top of their creation, watching the ball run the course. There are endless possibilities for solitary exploration, cooperative building and even competition, as kids of all ages can see whose course runs the fastest – or the slowest.
Waves of Gravity moved from it’s original location to a new and even more challenging format as part of the renovation for Guardians of the Great Lakes. The new Waves of Gravity includes a new “Plinko” mechanism and a new challenge. The former Waves of Gravity was on one flat wall. Guests will find the new placement challenging as they try to build structures to navigate a 90 degree corner.
Waves of Gravity was made possible through generous grants from the Worthington Family Foundation and the Lego Children’s Fund.
