ONGOING EXHIBIT

WATER IS POWER AND WATER WORLD CELEBRATES WATER – ITS MOVEMENT AND POWER, THE COURSES IT FINDS, AND THE WAYS IT INTERACTS WITH OBJECTS IT ENCOUNTERS AS IT FLOWS AND FALLS.

Visitors play and work with water in a variety of hands-on ways: launching balls into winding tracks, guiding boats through a lock system, fitting together plastic pipe to redirect flow, feeding a vortex or using air blowers to create currents. Visitors also interact with a model of the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and the new Bypass Bridge. The Hoover Dam model water tank and related activities demonstrate where the region’s water comes from, how the dam works, how electricity is generated, and the real-life forces of water. To support hands-on learning with water, hand dryers and waterproof smocks are available for visitors in Water World.
