In addition to our own science experiments and hands-on activities, you can visit community exhibitors outside and then come inside to check out the rest of the museum!

Some of our science demos will include:

Candy Carnival: Come one, come all, and test your luck at the carnivale!  From Pumpkin Patch Parachutes to Candy Cornhole and everything in between, come with kids of all sizes, leave with fabulous prizes. 

Frankenstudio: Watch the light flicker and hear the sparks crackle as you gaze upon the amazing glowing pickle and our other electrical wonders!

Punkin' Chunkin': Fall into science as we chunk some pumpkins with our very own Trebuchet, watch and help measure as we launch some of our favorite fall treats into the sky and learn about the forces at work! Then once the chunking is over make your very own fall garden start pack!
