What is there to do?

Science is SO much fun to learn about and experiment with, and at Powerhouse Science Center, kids can explore a number of hands-on and interactive exhibits where THEY can feel the excitement of science first hand!

Kids can explore, discover, experiment, and learn across the day, through the exhibits that cover scientific expedition, design, and nature!

There are fossils to be examined as they dig up prehistoric beasts in the dino dig pit, travel to distant galaxies and explore the interior layers of the Earth in the Expedition Science exhibits.

The Science Center Design Lab is where kids are encouraged to build, test and create. Those curious and inquisitive minds can map-out, build and test a prototype solution to a given challenge. Here, kids of all ages will have FUN as they find the solutions through innovation!

Love animals? Great, the Powerhouse Science Center has those too! In the Nature Discovery exhibit, there are birds, mammals, amphibians, invertebrates and reptiles living in indoor animal habitats. See and meet them up close through interactives and hands-on activities!

Are you ready to see exactly just how science can be super fun? Well, get ready kids, because Powerhouse Science Center is ready and waiting for YOU!
