Have you heard the news? We're moving into a BIGGER space! After 10 years at the "old chalet" with the big blue doors, we're moving on to make room for new exhibits, more programs and exciting upgrades.
The new space at 2744 W. Main St. will feature several new improvements including a Science Station with science demos, and visiting guest presenters. The expanded STEAMlab invites visitors to dive deep into high-tech activities like 3D printing, coding and Minecraft.
We'll post updates here and on social media as we finalize our Grand Opening events!
CONSTRUCTION IS HAPPENING NOWThough the new space is practically perfect, there are some great upgrades we're bringing to the building. Our new space is ADA accessible so everyone has the opportunity to play learn.
This week we are installing new signs on the building and our newest exhibit is being constructed.
NEW EXHIBITS - A SNEAK PEEKIn January, we'll welcome back an exhibit that will compliment building healthy habits in the new year. A big thank you goes out to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) for helping us showcase playful living through this exhibit. Look for announcements in our newsletter about Member's Only exhibit previews.
As you read this update, Building Brainstorms, brought to you by CS Structures, is being installed as our first new exhibit! It features elements of hands-on building, architecture, design and construction! This interactive exhibit encourages visitors to think through building projects and to creatively solve real-world problems. This exhibit is a permanent addition to the Science Center.
STEAMlab EXPANSIONThe STEAMlab will have expanded capacity to host our unique field trips like Light Science, 3D Design, Catapults and Math Patterns! Open Labs will have a variety of new tools and more space to tinker in.SO WHAT STAYS THE SAME? We will continue our loved Preschool Science Series on Monday mornings from 10:30-11:30 in our freshly built classroom. Open Labs will still be on Mondays 3-5 and Tuesdays 4-7.
