Explore different machines through classic playground toys

Machines are all around us – even at the playground!

In the Simple Machines Playground, our newest We Explore adventure for young learners, kids will explore inclined planes, levers, wheels, and more through classic playground toys. Play on the see-saw, ride the merry-go-round, go down the slide, and make connections using smaller versions of simple machines.

We Explore is an interactive adventure series for kids ages 2-5, held in our I Explore gallery, with new themes all the time. Check the "Today at LSC" schedule for start times during your visit.
