Get Charged Up

Lie down on a bed of nails. With more than 1,000 nails, each nail supports only a fraction of your weight so the nails won’t hurt you.

See what happens when you put your hands on science. Humans are naturally curious and the science of observation helps us understand the natural world around us – how things work and why.

What you can do:

Bed of Nails:
Lie down on a bed of nails. With more than 1,000 nails, each nail supports only a fraction of your weight so the nails won’t hurt you.

Giant Lever:
Learn how levers give us a mechanical advantage in this giant game of tug-of-war. It’s not about how hard you pull the rope, but where.

Pulley Power:
Buckle up and go for a ride in one of our three new chairs.

Color Mixing:
Experiment with a prism to split white light into its different wavelengths and combine them to form different colors.

Electromagnetic Workbench:
Experience the invisible forces of electromagnetism as objects move before your very eyes.

Electric Circuits:
Build your own circuit and explore the science behind basic electrical components, voltage, current, polarity and Ohm’s Law.
