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.

SIP Main Gallery

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.

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.


Send an important letter in our classic mailbox, or travel to new destinations in our Smart Car.

Water Table

A new and improved version of 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.

Grow Zone

Tiny science exhibits, like sensory and magnet walls, offer the perfect place for the little scientists to experiment.
