Are you ready for a new exhibit at the McWane Science Center? Opening this weekend, Wallace and Gromit, and Shaun the Sheep, Shear Genius!
The exhibit, which opens September 17th and was developed by Minnesota Children’s Museum, marks the first time Aardman’s animated worlds will be brought to life in a North American touring exhibit.
In this hands-on exhibit, visitors will step into the environments of Wallace & Gromit and Shaun the Sheep – 62 West Wallaby Street and Mossy Bottom Farm – to explore the contraptions, antics and escapades of Wallace, Gromit, Shaun and other familiar Aardman characters through dramatic play and interactive opportunities.
Designed for children ages 3 through 9, Wallace & Gromit™ and Shaun the Sheep™: Shear Genius! builds on problem-solving themes found throughout both shows. Components and activities throughout the exhibit encourage children to playfully solve and talk about problems in fun, engaging ways.
Exhibit components and activities encourage children to playfully solve STEM-based and social-emotional problems in fun and engaging ways – from completing a circuit and to deciphering expressions, to fixing a machine and using the power of collaboration to help a farmyard friend.
