About the Scott Family Amazeum

The Scott Family Amazeum is a hands-on, interactive museum featuring Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) activities for families.

BENTONVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Impulse, on display at the Scott Family Amazeum through May 10, is really amazing!

The 12 light- and sound-enabled seesaws are each 30 to 40 feet long. The seesaws, that emit light and sounds, are immediately activated when a person uses them. Built-in lights and speakers produce a harmonious sequence of sounds and lights resulting in a unique composition, according to the Amazeum. 

Impulse was first presented as part of the 6th edition of Luminothérapie, in 2015-2016, at the Place des Festivals in the Quartier des Spectacles in Montreal. It was created by Toronto-based Lateral Office with Montreal-based CS Design and in collaboration with EGP Group based in Montreal.

Amazeum is the first exhibition of Impulse in the mid-South.

 Impulse is free and open to the public day and night.
