    NBC 5 and the C.R. Smith Museum invite you to visit When the Earth Shakes and the Big Blue Blocks by Imagination PlaygroundTM special exhibitions now through September 2 at the C.R. Smith Museum in Fort Worth.

    Jump on the Quake Karaoke platform and match an earthquake seismogram, build your structure, set it on a “beach,” and launch a wave in the 16-ft Tsunami Tank at When the Earth Shakes exhibit. Replay the impact in slow-motion and improve your design, complete Puzzled Earth, the plate tectonic puzzle, before time runs out and the pieces fall. Spin through geologic time to make Earth’s continents move and re-form. Be an engineer as you design and build structures to withstand earthquakes on the Shake Table. Find out what engineers do to keep our world safer, When the Earth Shakes!

    Big Blue Blocks by Imagination Playground™ is an exhibit for open ended, creative play where kids build a new world every day. Using soft blocks of different sizes and shapes, you can make objects like tractors, animals, and robots or build imaginary places like houses or cities. You can build scenery and then play in it. You can use the blocks to play hide-and-seek. There are no rules, kids decide what and how to play and there are no limits to their imagination. This explorative play is a lot of fun and you never have to do the same thing twice.
