Science Explorations - Circuits

Please note that our calendar is subject to change without notice. Check back for future events. Print Page
Friday, May 24, 2019 - 2:10pm to 5:40pm
6 and up

Science Explorations happen throughout the day. Check the TODAY sign in the Museum lobby for hours. At other times enjoy self-guided discovery boxes.

Circuits. The word “circuit” sounds like the “circle”. In a circuit electricity travels in a circle.  If there’s a break in the circle, the electricity is stopped in its tracks. Build your own circuits with batteries and bulbs, and explore what kinds of materials conduct electricity. Develop math, science and engineering skills as you observe and experiment.


PlaySpace will be closing on Monday, June 24 for the construction of a new space for 0 to 3 year olds and their caregivers.
