Step Up To Science
Marvel at the inner workings of the human body, the wonder of light, and the technology of robots in this new permanent mezzanine-level exhibit. Step over to the Science Bar and order a hands-on demonstration or experiment.
Watch this space for more information about our state-of-the arts and interactive robotics area.
Human Body +
Explore three key aspects of the human body: our digestive system, how the heart works, and the mysteries of the brain. Three activity stations allow visitors to follow food as it travels through the digestive system, make a heart pump blood, and move a ball with their mind.
Light & Energy +
Experiment with different types of light and prisms with the Light Refraction interactive and try your hand at the laser maze where children enjoy friendly competition as they try to get their light beam through the maze. Two interactive kiosks help children learn how wavelengths and prisms create different types of light and how to make light travel.
Science Bar +
Grab a lab coat and pair of goggles and step on up to the Science Bar where children will participate in hands-on demonstrations lead by the Museum’s Professor Labcoat. Learn all about chemical reactions, germs, light, biology, and so much more. You never know what's on the menu at the Science Bar.
