Magnetic Island consists of three, multi-level “islands”, each having strong magnets at their center. The magnetic force allows visitors to build organic bridging structures and forms using simple steel washers. The multi-level layout of this exhibit engages all ages. In addition, the multiple “islands” allows for collaborative building efforts.

Visitors can build in a variety of directions and can build a bridge between columns and even between islands. Washers are stored in the serving dishes as well as in the base of the exhibit.
