Day of Learning at Science Central

So it’s been a few years since I visited Science Central in Fort Wayne. Last week we had a chance to drive up there and spend a few hours exploring and visiting some new exhibits.2015-10-07 11.21.53editedScience on a Sphere: While this exhibit is open all the time there are special presentations during the day. We left right before one started, but still enjoyed walking around “Mars!”IMG_9402 IMG_9390Kids Central: Designed for kids 7 and under I think we spent the majority of our time here. Water area, play structure, shadow room, piano and more! The beauty of going during Fall Break … we had the place pretty much to ourselves.IMG_9401 IMG_9400Walking on the moon: Maggie got to try out what it felt like to have less gravity than we have on earth. Pretty neat!IMG_9389Crooked house: I’m not sure what exactly this exhibit is called, but it is our favorite! You get all confused by the crooked floor and crooked walls. Trust me … I almost fell down numerous times. These pictures don’t do it justice.IMG_9399 2015-10-07 12.12.39editedScience Central is two floors of packed exhibits and learning opportunities. We loved our entire visit (like getting to see how tall we were compared to the averages).IMG_9387 IMG_9398 IMG_9397 IMG_9396 IMG_9394 IMG_9392If you have kiddos (especially ones that like science), then this is a great stop for you. You can always pair it with a trip to the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo – another great experience we had recently.
