Check out our eight new exhibits that arrived in December. Three of these are: a pinball table in which you can create your own path; a simple machine using a lever and fulcrum to lift the Guinness Book of World Records; and a scale where you can balance shapes using math skills.
The Black Room
Explore a room where light is used in many ways: create a design on the huge lite bright; be amazed by the glow of fluorescent rocks; design a colored shadow on the wall; make a path across the light maze and light up a star; and play with a variety of objects that fluoresce under a light.

The viewer sees into an ever-changing kaleidoscope of inspiring and educational presentations of the latest and most beautiful in astronomy and space-based earth science.
