Exhibition Name:

Mindbender Mansion

Description: Enter the wonderfully puzzling world of Mindbender Mansion, an eclectic place full of brainteasers and interactive challenges guaranteed to test the brain power and problem solving skills of even the most experienced puzzlers. Visitors to this fun and quirky mansion are invited to join the Mindbender Society by gathering hidden clues and secret passwords scattered throughout the various thematic rooms of the house. The clues and passwords are revealed by solving select brainteasers and group challenges. Visitors are encouraged to think outside the box and collaborate with their fellow mansion guests to meet individual and group challenges, which include manipulating a tilt table, forming patterns in rolling chairs, keeping up with a conveyor belt, maneuvering a flying machine, and disco hopscotch spelling.

Math, science, and technology educational content are woven into the puzzles, videos, and group challenges found inside Mindbender Mansion. At the heart of the exhibit is the essential scientific task of problem solving and critical thinking. The puzzles are an excellent tool for explaining mathematical and physical science concepts. In order to solve these puzzles, visitors must identify patterns, think ahead, use logical reasoning, and look at the problems from different perspectives, setting aside preconceived ideas. Additionally, the popular group challenges require communication, collaboration, leadership, and teamwork skills - skills that are critical in solving the challenges facing today's businesses and communities.

Adults, families, children and school groups alike will enjoy exercising their minds as they try to master each of the 40 individual brainteasers and the 5 group activities in this fun and unconventional exhibit!
