The Whitaker Center is the perfect destination for groups looking for an immersive science experience. Through age-tailored programming, groups can delve into the science of engineering, natural forces, and the human body. Groups will have the chance to learn about the science behind film and television in the Backstage Studio, and explore the world of transportation with Move It! They can travel to exotic destinations through the center's digital cinema, or have an unforgettable experience at the Broadway-style Theater. Younger groups can explore science at KidsPlace.
