What a wonderful way to start The New Year…
On January 1, 2010, our family was invited to an awesome event held at The Ruben H. Fleet science Center.
It was to show case their new exhibit called “Block Busters” The museum was opened to invited guests only, and we were treated to a breakfast that the kids called “super cool!”; since there was a wide selection of donuts and juice, my kids favorite in the mornings 😉
We ALL got to play in the exhibit area where they have over 15,000 wooden Keva (Knowledge – Exploration – Visual Arts) planks. These planks are laser cut, and and measures 1/4 inch thick, 3/4 inch wide and 4 1/2 inches long. We learned that these planks are precision cut and are all exact size, designed to build limitless things with.
We walked into the exhibition area and saw many children and adults playing with the KEVA planks, in addition there was a special surprise. Joe Lizurra from KUSI news was doing his broadcasts live from there, and also was building his own tower. My kids went straight to building, and so did my husband. I was too busy taking pictures, but soon was drawn to the KEVA planks, myself, lol.
During Joe’s last broadcast, he let the kids destroy his 5 foot building. Of course all of the kids loved it. After his broadcast, my son Izeah borrowed Joe for a few different things 😉
In the exhibit it says that destroying your designs if half the fun, my children will agree..
I want you to share the fun of these KEVA planks yourself. I am going to give a way 4 tickets to The Ruben H. Fleet Center, so you can experience The Block Buster exhibit yourself .
Have fun, be a child, I promise it’s a lot of fun, and you learn a lot of fun facts as well. Visit their awesome IMAX movie theater, see the many exhibits they have available, after your visit, stop by their gift shop, they have “austronaut ice cream” and you can also purchase your own set of KEVA planks for yourself 😉
At The Ruben H. Fleet Center, you have to purchase separately your IMAX movie ticket, but The 2 tickets I am giving away, have the IMAX movie ticket included 😉
