Science in Motion
This lively, hands-on exhibit invites visitors of all ages to participate in science by seeing, touching, feeling, hearing, and discovering.
Explore Energy, the Human Body, and Technology. Use your muscles to provide electricity for everyday items found in a child's room. Have fun with energy using light, lenses, prisms, and filters. Take your pulse and see what affects your heart rate. Test your reaction time or your grip strength. Manipulate levers and gears to better understand how simple machines work. Design, build, and race a car on a 14-foot racetrack.
You don't need to go far to find out more about topics or scientists that spark your interest. Computer resource stations in the three exhibit sections contain a wealth of information on subjects introduced in the discovery walls and hands-on exhibits.
All this and more in Science in Motion.
