You are already obsessed with the game, you laughed yourself silly at the movie, now get ready for the exhibit: Angry Birds Universe at the TELUS World of Science, Edmonton.
We recently spent the better part of the day at the exhibit (combined with the requisite visit to the Body Fantastic and fan favourite Museum of Gross) learning about physics in the colourful world of the Birds and Bad Piggies.
The best part of building a tower is always knocking it down. Bonus points for a giant slingshot!
If you have somehow escaped the siren call of the addicting games or missed the blockbuster feature film, a quick introductory video at the start gives you a quick run down. Basically the Bad Piggies stole their eggs, angering the birds and starting a slingshot based offensive to get said eggs back.
Inside the exhibit proper, visitors are encouraged to use their bodies and brains at a bunch of stations exploring different concepts in physics. An indoor zipline, massive slingshots and a laser maze are just part of the awesomeness at Angry Birds Universe.
Anytime there is a chance for my boys to move while they learn its a good time.
Climb the wall, hit the button, light up the golden egg!
There is tons of interactive fun to be had with the Birds and their arch nemeses the Bad Piggies, all while teaching lessons about physics and exploring other STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) skills.
If you are a member of TWOSE, you may want to investigate the “Golden Egg” pass, that entitles you to unlimited entrance into the Angry Birds exhibit. It is likely worth it, as we have a feeling you will want to go back!
The joy of simple machines! Experimenting with weights and pulleys.
