How many chickens do you weigh? How tall are you in apples or inches or pennies?  Can you use your foot as a ruler?

Measurement is an essential part of our lives, but not always easy to understand. Gauge height, distance, volume, and more in Measurement Rules, an interactive exhibit that introduces visitors to various units of measurement. Master the basics and then compare, classify, and categorize different ways to measure using traditional—and not-so-traditional—tools including balancing scales, odometers, calipers, 3-D imaging, and counting “Mississippis.”
