Description:

All Aboard for Trains!

Celebrate the 31st annual Whistlestop Weekend kickoff to our All Aboard for Trains exhibition! During this weekend, the Science Center will transform into a train enthusiast's paradise as incredible train displays from the community fill Jack Wood Hall and other spaces within the building. Featuring multiple scales of trains, a variety of layouts, and awesome train experts who are ready to share their passions, it's a train extravaganza you won't want to miss!

Activities:

  • FOUR STROKE ENGINE
    Examine an interactive model of a four stroke engine to learn more about how basic combustion engines work. You’ll also experience an up close look at a lawn mower engine and get a better idea of what powers the vehicles that help us get a job done!
  • BUILD A RAILROAD CAR
    Using blocks and wheels, design and create your dream railroad car! Once the car is built, test the car on a gravity powered track in an attempt to build the furthest traveling car.
  • IT’S ELECTRIC!
    Learn how electricity moves down a track with this fun and exciting lab! Using snap circuits and light bulbs, complete a series of electrifying challenges.
