Jersey City, N.J. (October 3, 2019) – From mobile games to the big screen, Angry Birds have catapulted themselves onto the digital landscape. Beginning October 5, Liberty Science Center guests can “be the bird” in the Center’s newest traveling exhibition, Angry Birds: The Art and Science Behind a Global Phenomenon.
Based on the popular Angry Birds games, fans of all ages will have fun learning a wide variety of educational concepts in an extreme hands-on environment featuring both physically challenging and mentally stimulating interactives.
Guests will have opportunities to engage in hands-on demonstrations of various Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) concepts including building and racing handheld vehicles in a live version of Angry Birds Go!; visiting the hi-tech design studio to learn about the creation of the Angry Birds games; and exhibits explaining live bird characteristics from egg sizes to wingspan measurements and flight dynamics.
Incredibly unique interactives allow visitors to learn the principles of mass, energy, simple machines and architecture. Guests will build physical structures inspired by the games and slingshot a giant-sized “Angry Bird” to test their constructions. Other exciting activities include a stop animation and music studio, vehicle racetrack stations, and gaming stations.
Imagine Exhibitions, Inc., in partnership with Rovio Entertainment Ltd. And Jack Rouse Associates (JRA), developed this unique exhibition to present an educational and highly interactive attraction unlike any other.
Admission to “Angry Birds Universe,” which runs through April 19, 2020, is available with the purchase of a Combination or Premium Pass. To learn more, please visit LSC.org.
