In Precision Center, sponsored by Mercedes-Benz of Sugar Land, the Kidtropolis interactive automotive exhibit, children can experience working in an auto shop. The exhibit includes a Car Design station where children use design tools to express their new car ideas, an Assembly Bench to build car steering and suspension models, an Inspection Bay to examine the car for “flaws”, and a Crash Test Simulation that helps children learn about evaluating different car models and their ability to withstand a variety of crash scenarios. It also shows what happens to the drivers through interactives designed to simulate real world crash test practices.
The main attraction of the museum is Kidtropolis, a miniature city where children can learn to work and shop. The educational facility features a cultural center, outdoor exhibit and think tank. There is also a vet clinic, bank building, diner, art academy, city hall, community school, news bureau, market and Mercedes-Benz precision center in an area dubbed Kidtropolis, which Golden said was by far the most popular attraction.
