About the event
Hands-On Harley-Davidson, with a kid-sized motorcycle dealership and engineering lab, is a thrilling interactive exhibition that lets kids (and adults) Dream It. Build It. Ride It.
Created in Milwaukee by the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum in partnership with the Harley-Davidson Motor Company, Hands-On Harley-Davidson focuses on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. Standards-based learning opportunities for children of all ages and hands-on fun for everyone make it a great family experience.
The Hands-On Harley-Davidson dealership features:
- Two kid-sized Road King® inspired motorcycles with interchangeable parts, accessories and decals to customize your ride, realistic throttle action, working turn signals and sound effects that pair with first-person ride videos, a “see yourself” selection, and opportunities to learn about safety gear and preparing to ride;
- An interactive world map that features some of the most beautiful and challenging motorcycle tours in the world, along with travel themed math challenges and graphics about motorcycle design and engineering;
- Service department videos, costumes and large scale dealership photos for role play.
Along with the dealership, the exhibition includes a big engineering lab experience with tracks, loops, jumps that mimic your favorite skate park, winding road, rollercoaster ride or half-pipe. Three unique launchers, motion tracking software and room to build your own freestyle track makes the drop of a golf ball a different experience every time.
The 1,500 SF special exhibition will be on display this summer only.
