Magnetic Island consists of three, multi-level “islands”, each having strong magnets at their center. The magnetic force allows visitors to build organic structures in a variety of directions, build a bridge between columns, and even between islands and forms using simple steel washers. The exhibit consists of multiple “islands” which allow for collaborative building efforts, and the multi-level layout of this exhibit engages visitors of all ages. Washers are stored in the serving dishes as well as in the base of the exhibit.
