New Traveling Exhibit Arrives for Summer
NAPLES, Fla. – The Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples (C’mon) has received the support of The Tourist Development Council (TDC) to host Hands-On Harley-Davidson™, a traveling exhibit open now through September 8th.
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.
This exhibit 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, and a “see yourself” selection. There is also 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.
Along with the dealership, the exhibit 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.
