3…2…1…Blast Off combines high-energy physical play with important science concepts to create an exhibit experience that gives a workout to the body and mind. The exhibit features two main
components: a climbing structure and a collaborative interactive.

As visitors explore the climber, the theming and decor suggests they are moving through Earth’s atmosphere. As they climb higher up the blue sky of Earth transitions to the black of outer space and
they find their way into a space station. While the space station features a fictional design, it is based more in reality than science fiction by drawing upon researchers’ ideas of what near-future space
travel might look like. The space station interior includes buttons, levers, and switches that promote imaginative role playing and small-motor skills.

The collaborative interactive (titled Mission Control) allows kids on the ground to send re-supply rockets to the space station by working with other guests to follow the launch procedures.
Completing the pre-launch checklist in order allows visitors to “launch” a rocket. loaded with supply containers. The children in the space station can fit the supply containers into special slots and
request new supplies by sending empty containers back down to Mission Control.
