Aspiring scientists age 6 and under and their families will love this nature-inspired hub for free-play and hands-on activities!
Located on the fourth floor of the Science Center, Little Learner Clubhouse is a colorful gallery featuring a variety of interactive exhibits designed to foster scientific curiosity, including:
The Clubhouse: Climb and explore in The Clubhouse – a treehouse-inspired playground – while taking in a great view of all the exhibits below!
The Gathering Tree: Take a seat at a picnic table and explore activity backpacks, filled with activities related to building, insects, seasons, music, transportation, balance, and weight.
The Water Table: Make a splash! The Water Table is a great place for making real world connections to our rivers and other water sources we use every day. Go fishing at the fishing pond, have leaf races in the stream, and watch as water keeps a boat afloat in a clawfoot bathtub!
The Tomato Stand: Gather up and sort red and green tomatoes using conveyors, vacuum tubes, and an Archimedes screw!
The Book Cove: Head inside our Yellow Submarine, take a seat on a beanbag chair, or make your way through the hanging sea kelp. It’s the perfect place for a little quiet time!
The Baby Garden: This farm-themed soft-space is a play area designed with our youngest scientists in mind. Curious crawlers will love the plush vegetables and toy sheep that decorate this white-picket-fenced space.
The Button Wall: Experience a flurry of special effects! Explore this wall of 200 buttons that set off all sorts of sights and sounds throughout the gallery.
