Discover the science of how things move. From light and sound, to force and motion, to electricity and magnetism, and so much more!

Enjoy, discover and explore principles of light, music and sound, human biology and health, force and motion, ecology and the environment, and electricity and magnetism.

Science on the Move’s intriguing exhibit investigations will engage your mind and body. Turn yourself into a battery, crank up a tornado in a bottle, escape from handcuffs, predict the outcome of chaos, build a food chain and much, much more.
