Forces of Nature

It’s a wild world! Explore the power and unique traits of our natural world in Forces of Nature located on the Museum’s mezzanine. Get hands-on with concepts related to earth, air, fire and water as you:

  • Glide in a hovercraft while balls soar through a pneumatic tube overhead
  • Engage with concepts including topography, fluid dynamics and the sun’s temperature through augmented reality technology
  • Experiment with magnetism and learn about how Earth acts like a giant magnet
  • Dive into a ball pit that looks like lava from a volcano
  • And more!
