Hands-on science is the name of the game in this unique, kid-friendly gallery space. Designed for children 7 to 12 years old, the interactive exhibits and educational games in Science Station make life science, earth science, physical science, and math both relevant and fun.
Exhibits such as the Whisper Dish, Plasma Ball, Wentzscope, and Ball Maze invite children to explore sound, light, logic, and motion. Human anatomy models, brain-teasing puzzles, and fossil digs reveal even more wonders of scientific discovery.
New to Science Station is the Nano Exhibition. Come experience this interactive exhibition that engages family audiences in nanoscale science, engineering, and technology. Unique hands-on displays present the basics of nanoscience and engineering, introduce some real world applications, and explore the societal and ethical implications of this new technology.The Nano exhibit was acquired through a grant from the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Network) with support from the National Science Foundation.
Science Station is always evolving, so visitors will want to make it a regular stop when they visit the museum.
