Roper Mountain Science Center

The facilities at Roper Mountain will keep students, scouts, and homeschoolers entertained with unique and educational hands-on science lessons. In addition to the Symmes Hall of Science and the planetarium, groups can also explore in the butterfly garden, arboretum, and Living History Farm. Groups may engage in a nature-based scavenger hunt, explore animal habitats, solve a pollination challenge, or study specimens in a wetland ecology program. In the physical sciences, groups will experiment with light and energy, robotics, the physics of flight, or work together to devise modern energy solutions while learning about generators, electromagnets, and turbines.
