Dr. Dare's Lab Open Lab Experiments (11:30 am)
Come to Dr. Dare's Lab, where you get to be the scientist. The Science Center provides the materials and directions so you can do the experiment yourself! Stations around the lab will have experiments ranging from easy to difficult in a variety of sciences, from Biology to Physics to Chemistry.  Instructors will be available for questions and help, but they are mostly just to make sure you don't blow anything up.  

This area is appropriate for guests ages 6 and up, and children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Please note that some experiments require the use of safety equipment, which is provided. 


Space Base (11:30 am)
Explore the surface of Mars using an amazing combination of virtual reality software and hardware. A head mounted display shows you actual surface features of Mars while the Virtusphere allows you to move around in the virtual landscape. In essence, you are the first person to walk on Mars! This ticketed experience is free with admission; simply sign up at the Base Command on level 4.  Guests wishing to participate in this experience must meet the following requirements:

Storytime (10:30 am)
Curl up in KidsTown with a good book! Science Center staff bring a book and corresponding craft to KidsTown. We read the book and complete a craft together, talking about elements of the story as we go along. Depending on the nature of the craft, StoryTime may happen under the Story Tree or at the blue craft tables. Story books are changed out every other week. Craft time works best when children bring an adult.

This activity is best for guests 7 and under when accompanied by an adult.
