January Morris Workshop

The Wonderful World of Water

Join us on Saturday, January 22nd, with Connie Nye of Sweet Water Education Events Training! She’ll teach you and your family all about the wonderful world of fresh water! And, if you’re lucky, you’ll get to meet some of our local water creatures (the really small ones). Get more info here!

Volunteer at Great Explorations

Greet visitors and help find the perfect play space to getting your groove on during one of our famous dance parties. Work side by side with our gallery educators to make science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) come alive through our exciting educational programs, volunteers are an important part of the Great Ex team. Learn more here.

The NEW Augmented Reality Sandbox

We have a new exhibit! The 3D camera scans the topography of the surface of the sand, and through the projector, turns the surface of the sand into a dynamic world.  The lower spots appear covered with water, with the higher elevations becoming mountains. It also updates in real-time. If you dig a pond, it will fill with water, if you pile up a new ridge, it becomes a mountain!

Stay & Play After-School Program

Elementary-aged children enjoy museum play, supported homework time, an afternoon snack, and more! Pick-up at select local schools. For more information click here.
