Event Details:

Discover the madness behind the method! Apply the scientific method to uncover the truth behind popular myths. Can you drive a car blindfolded or hang from the edge of a cliff? Based on the real-life operations room of the MythBusters’ iconic set, this exhibition is filled with gadgets, props, video and blueprints used by the hosts to explore myths on the show.

Can you really huff and puff and blow a house down? Will running in the rain keep you drier than walking? Can you pull a tablecloth off a fully set table without disturbing a dish? Can you react fast enough to dodge a paintball? Don’t try these things at home – try them at Imagination Station!

From Astrophysicists to Zoologists, from Ethnobotanists to MythBusters, all scientists have one major practice in common when it comes to experimentation and exploration—the scientific method. The co-hosts of Discovery Channel’s Emmy®-nominated show MythBusters combine their curiosity-driven hypotheses with inventive testing methods, producing results that always surprise their viewers and oftentimes, themselves.

Under the guidance of the scientific method, MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition is your chance to try the MythBusters’ unique “Put it to the Test” methodology for yourself:
Imagination Station, Toledo's Science Center

            Wonder – What crazy questions can we ask?
            Research – What is already known about those questions?
            Guess – What do you think the answers are?
            Test – Design experiments to answer the questions.
            Discover – Test and test again…and break some stuff too.
            Results – What did your experiments tell you?
            Share – Shout it from the rooftops!
