A new interactive exhibit opens at The Strong this weekend, with hands-on activities that emphasize why we find heroes heroic: teamwork, problem-solving, and justice. "DC Superheroes: Discover Your Superpower" includes a series of educational displays and fast-paced challenges, such as racing (virtually) against The Flash and solving puzzles to defeat villains. An opening celebration weekend on Saturday, September 28 (11 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and Sunday, September 29 (1 to 4 p.m.) features heroic crafts, costumed fans (including visitors), and displays by Rochester LEGO Users Group.
