I was invited to attend, and we will be bringing our 3.5 year old over the break. The center offers a ton of exhibits and presentations for all ages, from the littlest learners to science savvy school-aged kids! In addition to all of the usual attractions and exhibits, there will be some great winter-themed events, including live animals (like penguins!) and really cool science experiments like making snow and liquid nitrogen ice cream!

Retro Science (daily) will challenge families to work together and use simple machines to complete fun tasks – like having kids lift their parents!
Families with young learners will be pleased to find new programs each day just for them – films in the Kids’ Cinema, interactive science lessons disguised as playtime in We Explore, and LSC’s very own high-tech Story Time.
