I CAN Wonder Why

I CAN Wonder Why

Visitors explore and experiment, inquire and discover, test and uncover all while building an understanding of the relevance of science to everyday life.

Exhibits in I CAN Wonder Why prompt a reaction of “Wow!” followed by an inquisitive, “Why?”

Hands-on contraptions and physical manipulatives let visitors:
• launch balls or airplanes into the air
• hoist themselves up in pulley chairs
• collaborate on simple machines including a Bernoulli blower and Gizmotron
• experiment with real world science in the Lab
