STEM Playground

Tinker, build, fly, and play at the Michigan Science Center’s STEM Playground.


Stop by the STEM Playground to learn about the forces acting on an airplane, how to position a sail to be able to travel into the wind, how engineers design everything around us, and the importance of planning and foundation when building.

The STEM Playground consists of challenge spaces where guests will exercise their STEM skills to create and test paper airplanes, use their imaginations to build with blocks, learn about angles and wind direction on a sail car table and bring everything together with explanations from MiSci STEM experts.

Access to the STEM Playground is included in the price of general admission.
