Science World at Telus World of Science | The Science of Sports
"Over the summer, during our Science of Sports exhibition, one of the science facilitator's designed a sports shoe out of KEVA planks, right in front of the KEVA Gallery. It was the perfect way for visitors to see how we feature our new exhibitions and it provided visitors with some ideas for building, before they enter the KEVA Gallery. We also featured weekly challenges for visitors and staff in the gallery. Many people built stadiums, uniforms and other items related to sports. Thank you Hyder (shown in photo), for your design and engineering of the shoe structure."
"Our visitors enjoy building elaborate structures that they can share with others, by simply snapping photos of their structure and posting the photos on social media with the hashtag #swKEVA. These images get collected from a variety of social media platforms and form a visitor-curated photo gallery, which is displayed at Science World, on the KEVA gallery monitor, and on our KEVA webpage. It's a fantastic way to see and share the structures as they go up."

National Geographic Museum | Pirate Day
The National Geographic Museum used the KEVA Planks exhibit to provide a hands-on activity for their Pirate Theme. We provided them with models including ships, castles, docks, cannons, dingies, pots, and pirate villages. Visitors were immersed in a pirate world and expanded upon it by building structures to reflect what they had seen in the exhibit. Imagine what a pirate might see with their unpatched eye, and build it!
Middle SchoolMarkham Museum | Local Cultural History
The Markham Museum is a cultural history museum in Markham, Canada that purchased the complete KEVA planks museum exhibit to help tell the Markham story with hands on activities. We re-created log cabins, wagons, rivers, trees, fences, homesteads, trains, and bridges with KEVA planks to make history come alive. We trained the entire staff so they know all the secrets of leading visitors through historic discussions and how to challenge a room full of kids with high-action construction challenges.
Science World at Telus World of Science | Illuminating Science & Art
"This fall saw the opening of Light: Illuminating Science & Art in our Feature Gallery. What creations tie in with light? Well, Science Facilitator, Iain Fraser, took his idea and built a lamp, which included an LED light. The result was delightful. With many KEVA buildings, we can see how light creates shadows and illusions. There are many other light-related challenges that you can do in the gallery—can you think of some?"
