exhibit design, development and fabrication

Custom Mechanics

Our mechanical interactives bring phenomena to life while engaging the body and mind. Years of experience have taught us how to create exhibits that will survive thousands of pulls, twists, openings, and closings.
Galesburg's Big Wheel
Discovery Depot Children's Museum
Galesburg, IL

The inventor of the Ferris wheel hailed from Galesburg, Illinois, so Discovery Depot wanted a big wheel as centerpiece of their new museum. We designed a nine-foot tall Ferris wheel, powered on visible gears with changing speed, color and lighting effects—a perfect blend of STEM learning with history background.
