about the exhibit
Inspired by Rube’s original illustrations and inventive storytelling, this exhibit contains a collection of new 3D, life-size machines and hands-on, interactive components that connect Rube’s iconic cartoon contraptions to the way things work in the physical world. These experiences provide insight into the legacy of Rube and how classic engineering principles can be re-imagined as entry points for deeper exploration of STEAM concepts for 21st century learning.
This exhibit has bilingual (English/Spanish) signage.
