Visitors use a custom mini golf course to learn how science, technology, engineering and math apply to the sport at this fun an interactive exhibit.
Over the years we have done a lot of work with UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science, so when they contacted us to build a custom mini golf course for their Well Played exhibit, we happily agreed to help. One of the East Bay’s premiere science museums, the Lawrence Hall of Science designed a new exhibit that would educate visitors about real world STEM applications, and sports are a great way to exemplify concepts like trajectory, angle, velocity, and force. The collaboration began with a meeting with our producer Gary Beisaw, who visited the museum space and discussed the requirements for the golf portion of the exhibit. Detailed drawings were provided by the exhibit designers at LHS, and Gary turned these into build drawings. Our team of talented fabricators then got to work in the shop. When finished, they packed it up in a travel crate and delivered it to LHS who installed the course in their museum. If you have a chance, stop by the Lawrence Hall of Science and experience the Well Played exhibit for yourself.
