It’s a tough job separating truth from urban legend, but the MythBusters are here to serve. Using real science, the team from the popular Discovery Channel® TV series does more than explain how something may or may not be scientifically possible; through trial and error, the team actually demonstrates it. Now, this hands-on, minds-on exhibition sparks that same creative MythBusting experimentation. This time you are the MythBuster!
Working with the Mythbusters team, we recreated many of the experiments demonstrated on the hit TV for the exhibition. The challenge was to retain the excitement of the original Mythbusting while creating interactives that are safe and portable. The final design emulated the hand hewed, raw aesthetic of the show, while still incorporating precise functionality. We kept the amount of text reading to a minimum, in favor of hands-on kinetic experimentation.
Organized by Exhibits Development Group and Geoffrey M. Curley + Associates in collaboration with Discovery Communications and Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago.
