The EcoTarium's new exhibit, "KEVA: Build It Up!," stimulates the imagination. These uniform maple planks provide an easy, non-messy way to explore sculpture and design, form and function.

Build structures simply by stacking the planks. No glue, no connectors, just simple engineering and improvisation. This exhibit turns artists into scientists and scientists into artists. KEVA planks inspire the whole family to enjoy building together.
