We can build our own creative structure at the Construction Zone. Let’s think about the different kinds of buildings we have seen, and consider the many materials and designs used to make them. Can you imagine the house you would like to live in in the future after seeing the diverse designs of traditional Korean houses, ancient Greek temples, and modern structures? Is it a wooden house or a brick house? How can we build a fine, solid house? Let’s explore the world of building materials and then design and build the most unique house in the world! (This zone is designed for pre-schoolers to early elementary school students.)
