Mythbusters: The Explosive Exhibition at the Ontario Science Centre
Exciting news! You know all those things you’re not supposed to try at home, like hang off a ledge or drive blindly? Well, you can try all those things at Mythbusters: The Explosive Exhibition, which opens at the Ontario Science Centre today. It’s an interactive exhibit based on real experiments from the Discovery Channel’s TV show. I had the chance to visit the exhibit and it was truly amazing. Check out my photo diary below.
The entrance to the Mythbusters exhibition looks just like a TV set!
Visitors can see props from the show in real life! The mechanical shark was pretty cool.
“Tablecloth Chaos” lets you try to pull a tablecloth off a fully set table. Do you want to see if I could do it? Check out the video here!
At the Cliffhanger exhibit, you can tests your limits by holding onto a small ledge. How do people in movies do it?
This exhibit tests whether a dropped piece of toast always lands butter side down. With various contraptions, I tested this theory!
First, I dropped it from a lever three times and they all landed with the butter side up. I thought I had my answer until I tested it again…
The second time, all three pieces landed butter side down.
I even got to see a 10-minute live mythbusting demonstration. Today they were testing to see if a person could dodge a paintball!
I had so much fun at Mythbusters: The Explosive Exhibition. It will be at the Ontario Science Centre from June 5th to September 13th, 2015. You can also check out the Mythbusters website for more cool stuff.
