Hello? Yes...oh it's for you. It's science calling. They are on Orchard Mesa at 2660 Unaweep Ave.

Where are we going today?

Who says maths and science can't be fun!? 

The John McConnell Math & Science Center is a fun and friendly experience where kids can have math and science brought to life for them!

Here, science is literally in your hands!  They have laid out the basic elements of science for both kids and adults to investigate hands-on.

Turn, look, pull, push, feel, try, question...anything you need to do to understand it better!  There are fun and colorful interactive exhibits that deal with technology, engineering, math, and science. And it makes it fun!!

There are even super cool bug cams that you can use to study the real life bugs in the center!  You can watch an air cannon blow out birthday candles from 10 feet away, or get your brave hat on and get up close with a real LIVE beehive!

There's a fun hydrogen fuel cells exhibit, super strong microscopes to use, and a camera that lets you see your own eye up super close!

The first Thursday of every month is family science night, each with a different theme, so the whole family can come down and explore!

There are plenty of things for the small kids to experience too - as some of the exhibits are perfect for those even as young as 3. 

So get touching, feeling, smelling and exploring because science and math are now officially fun!
