Thinkery is the ultimate space for families to discover a plethora of “whys” and “hows” using fun, scientific and physical experimentation. The innovative building houses countless hours' worth of activities: peering through microscopes or learning at the Animation Station in the Innovators’ Workshop; practicing concepts of aerodynamics with the object launcher in the Spark Shop; drawing with light or freezing shadows in the Light Lab; uncovering the link between water and sound in the Currents exhibit; or settling in with a wide variety of picture/story books in the cozy Story Nook. And if the weather’s right, don’t forget to visit the outdoor area complete with space-age playground and a stream stocked with buckets and sieves for water fun.
