Science Explorations happen throughout the day. Check the TODAY sign for hours. At other times enjoy self-guided discovery boxes.

Circuits. The word “circuit” sounds like the “circle”. In a circuit electricity travels in a circle.  If there’s a break in the circle, the electricity is stopped in its tracks. Build your own circuits with batteries and bulbs, and explore what kinds of materials conduct electricity. Develop math, science and engineering skills as you observe and experiment.
