The Science Center’s popular hands-on laboratory experience re-imagined and expanded.
SciLab is a real laboratory environment where visitors become scientists— donning lab coats and safety goggles and conducting experiments at stations throughout the lab.
- Test tubes, pipettes, microscopes and more
- Different experiment stations and varied challenges
- Chemical reactions, DNA extraction
Extract DNA. Check out creatures and common items through a microscope. Explore acids and bases. Discover how cells work. In the SciLab, scientists practice measuring and mixing, pouring and stirring, hypothesizing and observing.
SciLab experiments are for 3rd graders and up and happen on an ongoing first-come, first-served basis, lasting 10-15 minutes apiece. Please check the Hours page for current SciLab hours.
