Let’s Learn

At the Maryland Science Center, we stand for learning by doing. Our three levels of hands-on exhibits provide unique learning experiences that can’t be recreated in the classroom.

Let’s Learn

Let’s science.

We believe that exploring the possibilities of science is active, not passive, and inclusive. We celebrate the idea that cause and effect, trial and error, and especially outright failure, is the best way to teach–and learn!   Let’s science.
