Measurement Rules!

about the exhibit

Measurement is an essential part of our lives, but not always easy to understand. Gauge height, distance, volume and more in Measurement Rules, an interactive exhibit that introduces visitors to various units of measurement. Master the basics and then begin to compare, classify and categorize different ways to measure using traditional—and not-so-traditional—tools. Hands-on experiences allow visitors to understand measurement in relation to the world around them, collaborate with others and become confident in the language of measurement. You can:

  • Take a walk on a treadmill connected to a large odometer that tracks how many yards visitors walk during the exhibit
  • Find out how many chickens you weigh
  • Count Five Mississippi’s and see how close you can get to doing it in five actual seconds

This exhibit has bilingual (English/Spanish) signage.
