We’ll bring our science programs to you.
We partner with school districts to support science learning. We offer district-wide elementary, middle, and high school programs, either virtually or in-person.
We collaborate with a range of partners to innovate in science education. Together, we go further.
Help us pilot a new exhibit for our littlest visitors! Open 10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.
Embark on an illuminating journey into a world of wonder and discovery. Watch their eyes light up as you create colorful, intricate patterns, fascinating shapes, and sizes that will leave you both in awe. Uncover the mysteries of illuminations by changing the direction of a light beam and witness the transformation of everyday objects when shimmering, glowing, or flashing with different light sources. This playful experience will nurture curiosity in your children and ignite your own as light energizes your imaginations.
