Take a virtual tour of the 220+ interactive exhibits at the Michigan Science Center.
Explore the world of automation and learn how steel gets made.
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.
Kids Town features engaging activity areas in a child-scaled “town” just for guests ages two to five, allowing them to develop social and motor skills while exploring basic science concepts.
Roads, Bridges, Tunnels
Become an engineer as you walk our 80-foot-long Mini Mac Bridge, travel our roundabout, work the U.S. Steel Fun Factory and more.
Meet our educators and docents for hands-on interactive activities in our Centennial Lab. Discover a variety of science topics with themed activities in chemistry, physics, engineering, life science and technology.
Waves and Vibrations
From the Lumenarium to the Seashell Pipes to the walk-in kaleidoscope, this is the gallery to experiment with sounds, colors, reflection, waves, and more.
Nano is an interactive exhibition that engages family audiences in nanoscale science, engineering, and technology. Hands-on exhibits present the basics of nano science and engineering, introduce some real world applications, and explore the societal and ethical implications of this new technology.
Earth, Wind and Weather, sponsored by General Motors, features 15 new interactive exhibits that put guests in control of some of nature’s most strange and unpredictable phenomena. Create avalanches and geysers, explore Jupiter’s otherworldly surface, command ocean waves, step into a powerful natural vortex, transform desert landscapes, and more with this immersive new experience!
Earth, Wind and Weather is included in the price of general admission and is available for virtual K-5 field trip programs.
This experience will help learners of all ages understand how STEM concepts shape their world, as well as highlighting potential future careers. Relevant STEM learning, including engaging with real world phenomena like weather and climate, helps students connect more deeply with underlying science content and relate those connections to the world at large.
