Design Zone is Now Open at Orlando Science Center

Design Zone is Now Open at Orlando Science Center– Behind every half-pipe, there’s a vert. Behind every dance mix, there’s a beat. Behind every thrill ride, there’s velocity. Design is everywhere we look and in everything we do, and math is behind it all. Design Zone is now open at Orlando Science Center with hands-on displays and activities featuring patterns, variables, scale, and ratios. Experience the creative power of math by exploring how these mathematical concepts are used by artists, architects, engineers, musicians, and other innovators.

Design Zone is Now Open at Orlando Science Center


This exhibit is presented locally by the Macauley and Helen Dow Whiting Foundation and was produced by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry and made possible by a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant. It highlights the relationship between mathematical thinking and the creative process in art, music, and engineering. Design Zone will be on display at Orlando Science Center until January 9, 2022.

What do mixing dance tracks, creating video games, and building roller coasters have in common? Math! Design Zone is focused around three thematic areas, which draw visitors into real-life scenes of music production, video game development, and extreme sports that directly and experientially relate to mathematical concepts. It features over a dozen hands-on exhibit pieces allowing you to create your experience!

Step into Club OSC and learn about the relationship between math and music as you learn about pitch, rhythm, and audio visual representations of sound!

Enter the Digital Design Lab and see how designers use scale, patterns, grids, and more in everything from video games to architecture!

Roll into Action Park and discover how math and physics are behind anything that moves. Design a roller coaster, build your own skate park, or race your bike to the finish line!

In Design Zone, you’ll solve real-world challenges and discover that math isn’t just a subject in school—it’s one of the coolest creative tools we have to design and invent almost everything!
