The Discovery Space is a quiet area for children to explore the world of science through activity kits and games. Guests can experiment with topics such as fingerprinting, magnification, water and more.

Coming Soon: More to Explore!

Take the Climate Detective Challenge! Come and explore the Sciencenter's four new Discovery Boxes that investigate how climate change is affecting the forest, ocean, urban and atmosphere environment. A carbon dioxide cartoon molecule will guide your family through four hands-on ativities that address this complex topic in a fun way!

Many additional discovery boxes are available: explore X-rays of people and animals with the X-ray Vision discovery box or use a geoboard and tangram puzzle to create patterns and shapes with the Shape It Up discovery box.

Guests can also explore optical illusions with the I Can't Believe My Eyes discovery box, and see how well they remember numbers, shapes, and objects.
