Frisco’s Sci-Tech Discovery Center will celebrate both ‘mind stretching fun’ and a popular past-time of brick building with the new Castle Builder interactive exhibit. You will be transported to a fanciful kingdom where you can build your very own toy castle brick by brick.
Learn about real-world castles and its building secrets, and plan your defense against the enemy. It takes creativity and skill to plan, construct and run a successful castle along with team work.
The Builders Guild is stocked with plastic toy bricks to provide a creative outlet for modern-day castle builders divided into three age-appropriate build areas; toddlers, ages 3-6 and 7-12.
Explore the inside of the royal castle full of decorations and the king and queen’s thrones; build a fortress wall on screen and test its strength with a virtual catapult; and climb into a lookout tower and slide back down to the ground.
In the dragon’s cave, children and adults can create and share their own fantastical stories that feature castles as the setting. Feel free to come in costume!
The following Castle Builder Time programs will take place throughout the duration of the exhibit, and are FREE with paid admission:
