Fun Science Fact! Did you know there is a place where you can play with sounds, explore the stars and space, get hands on with lights and have an amazingly fun time?
Well there is! Science Museum Oklahoma is home to more than 350 hands-on science exhibits and educational programs yet it feels like spending the day in a giant playground.
The insanely fun science floor explores how science really affects our everyday lives. How do airplane wings really work? How does a magnifying glass really focus? There is also a giant computer-controlled segway course where kids can learn about balance control and zoom around using a giant joystick!
Fancy boldly going where lots of kids have gone before? Destination Space takes astronauts in training and allows them to explore from the moon to outer space. There is also a great collection of artifacts actually used in NASA’s space program. You can even blast off in a simulated mission where you can see if you have what it takes!
For those really little scientists, “Kid Space” is a fun, secure and engaging area where all their senses will open up. There is a great range of activities such as putting on an entertaining puppet show, paint their face all weird and wonderful colors, and even create beautiful bubbles.
There are so many more elements to the museum so you will just have to go and discover them for yourself...!
