Construction Zone

Real tools, real materials, real fun! In the Construction Zone, pre-drilled wooden studs frame out an open-ended construction project where children design their own “plumbing” and “electrical” circuits like the pros. Future architects can try their hands at bridge construction over a model of the St. Lawrence River or erect their own creations with the assortment of large foam blocks.  Learn about the St. Lawrence Valley’s contribution to New York City’s iconic skyline through skyscraper stories from local Mohawk residents and see if you have what it takes to walk in their shoes on our steel I-beam challenge. Celebrating multi-culturalism, creativity and problem solving, Construction Zone proves that we are better when we build together!
