Science in Play

Science in Play

Different activity zones challenge children to investigate, assess risks, use objects as tools, shop for shapes, textures and colors, explore, build, climb, predict and test – all through experimental and imaginative play. Reach new heights in our towering Happy Climber, sharpen your senses in the Noodle Forest, and engineer your own roller coaster with modular track pieces.

Learn about our travelling Science in Play2Go exhibit here.

Science in Play highlights

  • Science Depot: Changing themes means little scientists can explore, create, and share new things every month.
  • Color & Light: Build with Magna-Tiles on the Light Table, design with the biggest Light Brite you’ve ever seen, and explore light and shadow.
  • Shapes and Stuff Store: Shop for shapes, colors, and textures, or imagine faraway places in the Reading Nook.
  • Water Table: Everyone’s favorite! Explore the properties of water while you splash and spray.
  • Air Ways: Harness the power of wind to send scarves traveling through transparent tubes, launching toward the sky and floating down in a flurry of color.
