Special Exhibits at Mcwane during our visit

**There will be special programs, live science demonstrations, give-aways during our visit.

The slide from the 3rd floor to 2nd floor should be open!

Dinosaurs in Motion engages and educates the visitor using magnificent, fully interactive, life-size metal dinosaur sculptures created by North Carolina artist John Payne. An amazing blend of science, art and innovation, these life-sized metal sculptures will captivate visitors while their exposed mechanics illustrate science and technology principles in engaging ways.

Payne’s dinosaur sculptures also weave the principles of kinetics, biomechanics and robotics in their exposed mechanics and movable features. Visitors have the unique ability to manipulate the dinosaurs via lever and pulley systems, as well as with remote controls, offering large-scale dinosaur interaction unprecedented in a museum setting. Principles of innovation, observation and experimentation are also encouraged throughout the exhibition and are reinforced as the visitor takes on the roll of an “apprentice” in Payne’s studio.
