How do firefighters get water to the fire? Find out by learning through doing.
”Pump it UP!” is a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) based interactive series of hands-on exhibits that teaches visitors about the physics, logistics and mechanics that make firefighting possible.
Water is the key to firefighting. Pumps, valves and tactical operations are all important parts of the equation. Through Pump it UP, visitors not only see the entire picture in action, they are part of the action! In addition, the history of the tanker truck itself is explained, and a wall of water jugs visually helps visitors realize just how many gallons of water a tanker can hold.
Touch areas are sanitized after each family’s use in this interactive area.
This one-of-a-kind immersive educational experience is a big hit with kids and adults alike. This interactive exhibit was made possible by major sponsor VFIS/Hubbinette Cowell Associates, Inc.
