Demonstrations
Mark’s electro-mechanical exhibit features many of the mechanisms used in your favorite EM games – each on its own isolated display so that kids and adults alike can really understand the engineering being employed. Parts or all of the exhibit are available for Maker Faires, STEM festivals, open houses, days of discovery, science days, grand openings and other special events. Longer term loans of the Fun With Pinball exhibit can be arranged for museums, libraries and similar venues.
