Watching the Weather
Become a meteorologist this week as we explore tools used to predict the weather and follow weather patterns.
Robotics is a dynamic field that utilizes science, technology, engineering and math. Join us in the Lab for some exciting hands on demos and activities and learn more about how robots are changing our world.
About The Lab
Grab a pair of safety goggles and dive into a hands-on experiment at The Lab. In this exhibit, you’ll take on the role of a scientist and ask questions, make observations, and most important, get your hands dirty! Find out which sodas are the most acidic, what a scab looks like under a microscope, and what you can do to fight the flu.
While you’re here, engage with our team of EXPERT VOLUNTEERS and find out what it’s like to have a career in science.
Labs change weekly during the school year, and daily during the summer, so check out our CALENDAR PAGE to see our extended schedule.
We are so pleased to acknowledge the generous support received from the Biogen Idec Foundation in support of the Investigate Health Lab.
