Schaefer reviewed + provided structural analysis for the Giant Lever, a part of the Go exhibit at the Danville Science Center in Danville, Virginia. The Giant Lever illustrates movement + energy; guests can learn about levers by raising + lowering weights (or each other) placed in the cage at one end of the feature, and pulling ropes hung at multiple positions along the lever arm.

The steel-framed structure was shipped to site in large sections and was assembled on location by the installers.
