Little Scientist Week

Space Out!

March 12 - 17

For kids 5 & younger!

Your budding scientist will explore the wonders of space during this special week dedicated to our littlest learners, kindergarten age and younger. 

With their eyes on the stars, your astronomer-in-training will explore how craters are made on the moon, and then create their own. Their natural engineering skills will be put to use by constructing a paper rocket, and then they will send it soaring into the sky with a stomp! Your little scientist will investigate air pressure and cloud formation as they create clouds in bottles. Gravity comes to life as your mini-Newtons investigate gravity with a gravity well.

Little Scientist Week activities are free with admission to the science center. For more information, please call 419.244.2674.

Check out other events we have planned:

Summer of Speed: Start Your Engines!

  • Dates: 01 – 02 Jun, 2019
Zoom, blast and whoosh into Imagination Station to explore the science of speed! Investigate how race cars and rockets, planes and people, boats and baseballs overcome the forces of friction and gravity to move so fast.

Gear up for a fast summer as you explore the physics of speed as you design, build and race a wind-powered sail car. Get a close-up look at a race car, then construct your own using PVC pipe or LEGO blocks. How fast will your creations go?

Learn how the some of the fastest drivers in racing keep their race cars zooming around the track as you meet professionals from Michigan International Speedway.

Saturday, June 1: 12:30pm & 2pm (weather permitting)
Check out a sport that takes advantage of Toledo’s amazing waterways with demonstrations from Toledo Rowing Club on the Maumee River.
