Design Zone Exhibition


The Smithsonian affiliated, congressionally chartered National Museum of Nuclear Science & History will introduce a very special temporary exhibition, “Design Zone,” February 1 through April 26, where visitors can discover the secrets behind how videogame developers, music producers, roller coaster designers, and other creative problem solvers do what they do.

This engaging exhibit answers the questions, what does it take to create an addictive and fun video game, how many beats per second does a DJ need to get bodies moving on the dance floor, what goes behind creating a roller coaster or a skate park that produces the biggest thrills and more. Design Zone is a highly interactive, hands-on exhibition where visitors can explore a variety of creative concepts to learn the processes and tools needed to create a successful design. Design Zone is organized into three thematic zones, all highlighting the importance of science and mathematical thinking in areas critical to building creativity and innovation: art, music, and engineering

“The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History is excited to introduce such a fun and engaging exhibition that is sure to attract people of all ages,” said Jim Walther, Museum Executive Director. “STEM education and the creativity of art and music go hand-in-hand in this exciting exhibit!”

“Design Zone” will be on display at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History February 1 through April 26, 2020. This special exhibition is included with the price of admission into the museum.
