KUSA - Can you really huff and puff and blow a house down? Don't try this at home, try it at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, where you can be a MythBuster.
MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition is inspired by the Discovery Channel's Emmy-nominated series about a team of researchers dedicated to uncovering the truths behind popular myths by applying scientific methods.
The exhibition creates hands-on, interactive experiences for guests of all ages by combining popular scientific facts with innovative, family-friendly displays.
On the TV show MythBusters, co-hosts Adam Savage, Jamie Hyneman, Tory Belleci, Kari Byron, and Grant Imahara take
scientific investigation to new levels by proving or exploding myths using their highly experimental approach and extensive backgrounds in special effects.
Savage and Hyneman were heavily involved throughout the development of the exhibition to ensure guests experience
a true MythBusting encounter. "It's exciting to see fans take on some of our favorite experiments from the show while drawing
their own conclusions and data," said Savage. "Although they are tackling the same myths and questions, each guest can have a unique experience within the exhibit."
"We hope people have fun at the exhibit and get a sense of what it is like doing the show," added Hyneman. Museum guests will learn about myths, the MythBusters themselves, and what experimenting is all about by participating in a series of hands-on experiences and live demonstrations.
Experiments cover topics such as flight, friction, gravity, and speed. Exhibition highlights include:
*Blueprint Room-Based on the real-life operations room of the iconic MythBusters set, this room acts as an introduction to MythBusting and is filled with gadgets, props, videos, and, of
course, blueprints used by the hosts to explore myths on the show.
*The Workshop-This is the place where guests turn into investigators and use real science to test myths. Guest discover whether they get more wet running versus walking in the rain and find out if toast really does always land buttered-side down.
*Live MythBusters Demonstration Stage-Here guests have the opportunity to view and participate in a live science demonstration that dissects myths with the help of a team of
