The Giant Lever

Located behind Visitor Service, is one of our new stand alone exhibits.  It pits 1 vs. 3 in a game of tug-of-war.  As one of 6 simple machines, the lever, it uses mechanical advantage to give the individual player a fighting chance. Even the littlest of visitors will walk away a champion.

 

The Laser Harp

Located on the Lower Atrium inside Mind Zone – uses laser technology to play one of music’s most beautiful and intricate instruments.  Pluck the laser strings or strum along and sound like a world-class musician.  You’ll impress yourself and your friends!

 

The Ball Launcher

Located on the Lower Atrium in front of Science Studio – With the pull of a rope, and a little science of pressure, you can drop a bowling ball through a tube forcing a tennis ball to launch all the way up to the skylights.

 

The Giant Piano

Tiny feet make great music on our Giant Piano.

One of the classic exhibits at the science center is our Giant Piano located on the Lower Atrium.  Like the scene from the movie “Big”, kids (and adults) can jump aboard our giant piano and dance out Chopsticks like they did in the movie.  This exhibit transcends generations and makes everyone feel like a kid again.

Imagination Station will be closed Sunday, April 20th for Easter and open Monday, April 21 for Spring Break. Click here for hours and admission information.
