The Children’s Science Explorium presents its own hands-on science exhibits all year long. These exhibits are usually designed in-house and offer a fascinating variety of interactive components for our guests to explore and investigate at their own pace. The Children’s Science Explorium also hosts traveling exhibits from national and international science museums, in the fall and spring of each year. All exhibits are intended to spark a child or adult’s natural curiosity about how and why things work as they do. Each invites visitors to explore, build and examine their understanding of the fantastic world we live in!
Every year, once in the fall and once in the spring, the Children's Science Explorium brings in two brand new traveling exhibits to entertain kids and parents alike. These exhibits stay with the Explorium for about four months before they leave on their way around the country once more. Below, you will find the current and upcoming exhibits, as well as the dates for these exhibits..
~ Now On Display!~
Don't miss NOISE!, a traveling exhibit from ScienceWorks Hands-on Museum in Ashland, Oregon. Featuring exhibits on sound, music and hearing, this new exhibit is sure to knock your socks off.
Creating experiences from the “can you hear me now” Scream Chamber to the “good vibrations” of the Dancing Sand Plates, the exhibits take a playful look at the physics of sound waves as well as how music and sound affects our mood.
This exhibition was developed by the Sciencenter with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF)
through the Nanobiotechnology Center (NBTC)
