Workshops:

How do rockets fly? Do aliens exist? How do scientists explore distant planets? Answer these questions and more in our hands-on workshops at Discovery Place. For details please see below:

 

  • Make it & Take It: create your own Galaxy Dough, a jar full of stars and many more. The best part is you get to keep what you create!
  • Design and Launch Your Rocket: Explore how engineers have developed rockets over the years, and learn about the principles of rocketry. Construct and launch a rocket!
  • Do Aliens Exist?: We explore exoplanets in nearby galaxies and try to answer the old age question: are we alone in the universe?
  • My Solar System: Introduce children to the study of astronomy and the tools scientists use to explore space. Children will perform activities to understand the life cycle of a star and the difference between stars and planets.
