Science meets Main Street at the intersection of hands-on learning.

Take a walk down Main Street and discover how science interacts with your everyday life. Wander past iconic Baltimore landmarks while solving puzzles, exploring physics, and completing engineering challenges at various shops, a construction zone, and even the airport.

Exhibit highlights:

  • Use catapults to have a “food fight” at the Chaos Café
  • Experiment with angles and surface material to test bounce in our drop tower
  • Design your own paper airplane and launch it at the airport using a mechanical launcher
