Playful hands-on experiments delight guests of all ages

Our collection of favorite science activities has something for everyone. Adventurers climb a rock wall to test out friction. Young learners toss a ball into an airstream to see the magic of flight. Passers-by stop to play a quick brainteaser—and just might end up staying to create their own stop-motion animation.

And, of course, almost everyone loves to make (or pop!) six-foot-wide soap bubbles.
