Groups looking for engaging, fun STEM learning will find it all at the Center. Unique hands-on activities and exhibits foster a love of science that visitors will bring back to the classroom with them at the end of the day. Theme field trips like ChemFest, Engineer the Future, Inquiry Adventure, and StormFest give groups the chance to really delve in to a specific topic. While you’re at the center, make sure to check out the planetarium, or take in a show at the Omnimax.
