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 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.
