Tour Options

Energizer Machine

What goes up…must come down! Spinning wheels and many other simple machines are triggered by balls moving as you’ve never seen before. Introduction and self-guided exploration activities include observing machine behaviors, riding the “hamster wheel” and collecting data related to the operation of this mini-roller coaster in the Emerson Lobby of the Science Center.

Tours regularly available Thursdays at 10am.

Life in the Laboratory

See the animals of the Life Science Lab up close and personal. You will watch and make observations of our lab animals to find out more about how they live, what unique characteristics help them survive and what these animals have contributed to science. This experience will have you looking at the Life Science Lab and its inhabitants in a whole new way.

Tours regularly available Tuesdays at 10am.
