Great Lakes Science Center says
Science has never been so sweet! Don't miss this family fun celebration February 11-12, 2017! A “positively” good time is in store for guests during the Science of Attraction Science Spectacular, a physics show all about attraction and repulsion (of particles of course!), and chemistry comes alive during a special BASF Kids’ Lab hands-on workshop entitled Happy Hands. Guests of all ages will see how oil and water can mix in this experiment while making their own hand lotion.

Guests can also channel their inner cupid by designing and engineering their own crossbow and then testing its accuracy on an “electrifying” target range, and get hands on making an anatomical heart pin and their own secret message using goldenrod paper and a common household cleaner.

Smitten with Science weekend includes the chance to participate in a dissection workshop at 3 p.m. on both Saturday the 11th and Sunday the 12th. Registration is available online at

Smitten with Science is also a great opportunity to check out the Science Center’s newest special exhibition – Build It! Engineering fun one brick at a time – presented by ArcelorMittal. LEGO’s iconic, multi-colored bricks have been capturing the imaginations of kids of all ages for decades, and Build It!, opening February 4, will tap into the playful and creative spirit that is inherent in every builder who ever opened up a LEGO kit and saw the potential to make something their own.
