What people are saying:

This was a fun family friendly experience. The exhibits appear to be onsite at their machine shop. In the hour before the facility closed we weren't able to get to everything in the building. The exhibits are designed to help with critical thinking skills of kids and is a great learning activity.

    Science for All

    OK, let's get the cost out of the way, $30 for adults plus $$ for children. Go early, grab a self-guided map and explore. There are too many things to dwell on, but classify this as "science at your...

    We only did the outside stuff

    As we were here during the virus we could only see the outside interactive things but I assume inside was very good
