The science center is an engaging environment for teachers and students. There are themed areas, such as a physical science area involving our “Dynamic Earth”: our clouds, tornados, hurricanes, streams & waves. In every part of the science center, each display is presented with a short explanation or instructions. Some of this information is only accessible for upper grade level elementary students, who are proficient readers. Teachers can guide students’ exploration at each exhibit, as well as prompt them to answer each of the questions contained in the museum’s grade level pamphlet.
