Stacy Molter: Discovery Cube LA Opens New Exhibits

This past weekend Discovery Cube LA debuted not one, but two brand new exhibits geared towards children of all ages to enhance their natural curiosity and imagination about the world around them. The two new exhibits, Dora & Diego: Let’s Explore! and SPEED: Science in Motion, run now through early September 2016.

Dora and Diego—Let’s Explore! takes visitors on an active adventure in the enchanting world of Dora the Explorer with her animal-rescuing cousin Diego, and their friends. Explore Isa’s Flowery Garden, help Tico gather nuts, join the Pirate Piggies’ crew to uncover pirate treasure, and help baby animals in the Rainforest Maze.

  • The Purple Planet – Visit the Purple Planet with Dora and Boots! A Purple Planet home invites young visitors to climb inside and slide down on the surface of the Purple Planet.
  • Rocket Ship – Dora’s outer-space friends want to go back to the Purple Planet and need help getting there. Aboard the Rocket Ship, preschoolers are invited to put on a spacesuit, pilot the ship, and test their memory with images of colorful planets as they help Dora and Boots take their outer-space friends home.
  • Constellations – On the way to the Purple Planet, Dora and Boots encounter some interesting star groupings. Children and their families are invited to help identify the patterns made out of stars by inserting star shapes to light up a constellation.

Rev up your engines during SPEED: Science in Motion at Discovery Cube LA from May 28 to September 11, 2016. SPEED replicates the high-octane action of the Formula 1 race track, complete with pit lane, workshop and physical testing environments. This immersive experience is designed to unravel the cutting edge science and technology behind professional motor sports. Visitors can challenge themselves through hands-on exhibits and displays, to see if they have the skills, fitness and reactions to race at over 200km/hour.

Visitors can explore three areas to test their skills and learn what it takes to become a Formula One racer. Exhibit areas include:

  • The Workshop –Explore the science behind Formula One cars and learn about the engines, aerodynamics, and motion.
  • The Fitness Testing Area – Drivers can test their skill levels using anticipation, reaction time, peripheral vision and heart rate exhibits to see if they have what it takes to become a professional Formula One driver.
  • The Race Track – Trainee drivers can test their driving skills in a race simulator, change a tire under Formula One conditions, or compete against another driver in a virtual race.

Take a tour of the new SPEED: Science in Motion exhibit below.

You can even have a fun little competition on the pedal cars.
