STEAMlab is a hands-on, mentor-led space where children ages 8 & up construct meaningful projects, build skills and unlock understanding. View hours and programs here!
It’s A Bug’s World
Explore the world of bugs! Dress up like a bug; observe crickets & hissing cockroaches; learn what is a bug and what isn’t; and combine technology and insects to guide your own hexbug through a maze.
Exercise Your Imagination
Hop on our farm horse and go for a ride; collect eggs from the barn chickens; harvest sunflowers, and corn from our garden; and sell your veggies at our farmstead.
Design, engineer, fabricate and invent in our Maker Place, a tinkering zone for all ages. We provide the materials, you provide the innovation!
Circuit Studio is all about electrons! Tap out a tune on the Toolbox Piano; activate lamps & motors at our Snap Circuit tabletop; get wavy with our Electromagnetic monitor; and make a connection on the park bench!
Farm to Museum Sensory Garden
We’ve updated the backyard play space! Take your shoes off and stroll along the sensory path, deliver a secret with our whisper tube, play tic tac toe, or just sit and relax at our picnic tables.
For the Youngest Among Us
Upstairs at the museum, your toddler can practice rolling, crawling, climbing, and cruising in this space dedicated for kids aged three and younger.
Playground for the Mind
Set your world in motion! Send parachutes soaring high in the Flight Lab; test gravity, velocity and trajectory at the golf ball run; send a penny swirling down the coin vortex. It’s a playground for the mind!
