A fun and interactive experience for your entire school community, each 90-minute family event includes an interactive presentation and time for families to explore hands-on activity stations.

Carnival of Engineering
Step right up to explore engineering and technology! Experience a school carnival in a whole new way as the Science Museum puts an engineering twist on traditional carnival games. Activity stations include a reimagined frog flinger, cantilever building challenge, flinkers, the hand crane game, giant slide, and rollercoasters in a tube.

Marvelous Motion
