Brain Teasers 2, the sequel to the highly popular Brain Teasers exhibition, features a brand new collection of 21 hands-on puzzles designed to develop problem-solving skills and provide plenty of fun. Brain Teasers 2 presents a wide array of challenges for all ages, from mathematical conundrums to mind-boggling block puzzles. To solve these puzzles, visitors must use creative thinking and problem-solving strategies such as looking for patterns, thinking ahead, setting aside preconceived ideas and looking at problems from different perspectives.
Twenty puzzles are set up on five exhibit tables with four units per table (there is an extra puzzle that can be used as an alternate). Can you separate two linked metal hearts and then reassemble them? Arrange standard geometric shapes to create startling new ones? Solve a maze that is apparently unsolvable? In Brain Teasers 2, you can!
Brain Teasers 2 was produced and is toured by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. This exhibit was made possible by a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant.
