A collaboration between two Bozeman schools: Peak Academy and Bozeman Field School, Wild Alaska explores the effects of climate change on our nation's largest and most diverse state. Through the eyes of students in grades 4-12, discover the variety of organisms that live in Alaska's 32 diverse ecosystems: hear sounds the students heard during their trip; read from their science journals and pretend to fish on one of Alaska's many streams. Learn about this big, vast and glorious state!
Set your world in motion! Send parachutes soaring high in the Wind Tunnel; test gravity, velocity, and trajectory at the Ball Ramp; launch a rocket to the moon, and create a colorful pattern with our giant spirograph. Can you find the sweet spot on our Balance Board? Is it possible to blow a square bubble?
Nano is an interactive exhibition that engages family audiences in nanoscale science, engineering, and technology. Hands-on exhibits present the basics of nanoscience and engineering, introduce some real world applications, and explore the societal and ethical implications of this new technology. This exhibit is currently on display at the Gallatin Valley Mall, across the street from the Science Center.
Building Brainstorm features hands-on activities that explore the creative architectural design process and encourage collaborative problem-solving. Plan a dream home or a dog house, build a skyscraper model, find the best layout of an apartment model’s rooms and furniture, and much more. This area also features our Rigamajig — a collection of wooden planks, wheels, pulleys, nuts, bolts and rope which allows visitors to follow their curiosity through play. Building Brainstorm is generously supported by CS Structures, Morrison-Maierle Systems, and A&E Architects.
