Young children are natural scientists, taking in every detail in the world around them. Explore our exhibition floors and enjoy programs LSC has developed just for learners ages 2 - 5.
This gallery is devoted exclusively to guests ages 2 - 5. Visit the wall-mounted light board where kids can explore light and color by creating illuminated designs with bright, oversized pegs. Set lightweight balls in motion through a giant air maze of clear tubing, powered by a vacuum. There is a fanciful ball-launching machine, a climbing challenge perfectly scaled for younger guests, and many other engaging experiences. Young-learner specialists lead "Story Time" and the group exploration "We Explore"—seasonally themed—inside the gallery space. Check "Today at LSC" for programs' start times. (Second Floor)
Nearly every exhibition gallery has features and activities just right for young learners. A few favorites:
This day is for our youngest guests, grades Pre-K through 3, to explore Liberty Science Center with other students their own age. Young Learner Days will be held Oct. 18, 2017, and April 18, 2018. During the nationally observed Week of the Young Child, April 16 - 20, 2018, the Center will celebrate young learners with special programming every day.
Two large elevators and wide hallways make the building easy to navigate with a stroller. You can park a stroller outside I Explore.
