From Here to There

Come explore the science of how things move by land, sea and air. Ride a hovercraft to experience air pressure, turn up the heat to launch a colorful hot air balloon, and float a boat to experiment with air flow. Lift, launch and levitate your way through hands-on exhibits that make learning about gravity, friction, and the laws of motion fun!

Hot Air Balloon +

Turn up the heat! See how a hot air balloon inflates and takes to the skies.

Hovercraft +

Sit down, settle in and fly through the air on this amazing hovercraft. Ride on a cushion of air–you can twist, turn and travel with ease!

Engines +

Explore the inner workings of four important machines that power our cars, airplanes, lawnmowers and snowblowers; 2-stroke engine, 4-stroke engine, Wankel engine, Diesel engine.

Earth Movers +

Discover how simple machines can move things in this ball-pit construction site. Use ramps, buckets and scoops to lift and load balls into a dump truck and move them around!

Set Sail +

Adjust rudder and sail angles to send your boat across the windy lake. Change the wind direction for a new challenge as you had toward the next port.

Water Ways +

Operate an authentic canal lock system to move your boat between two different water levels. Adjust the valves: raise or lower water levels in the lock!
