Build It WOW! Exhibit <p>Build it square, build it strong! Build it curved, build it sticky! Build it together, build it big! Build it WOW!<br /><br />In the revamped Build It WOW! Exhibit, children have the opportunity to learn how different shapes form the basic building blocks of more complicated structures. At different building stations, children can learn about geometry, spatial relationships, balance, and stability. Visitors can also explore different ways objects can connect to each other. While creating, children practice the skills of imagining, planning, executing, and modifying ideas which sets an early foundation for STEM learning. <br /><br />The Build It WOW! Exhibit is on display through September 2017 and is generously sponsored by Anne M. Larsen, State Farm Agent.</p> America/North_Dakota/Center
