Marbles give students hands-on, minds-on opportunities for communicating, collaborating, creating and critical thinking. Your students are welcome to visit the 1st floor exhibits, but the strongest 4-5th grade curriculum matches are upstairs.
Students explore how people earn and use money for goods and services in the pizzeria and pet shop. Money flows through the bank as students aim to save, make deposits and withdrawals. Presented by North Carolina banks.
Create, innovate, design and construct! Students experiment with design as they build cars, use a variety of scrap materials to invent and build super structures with giant Legos.
Students put their skeletal and muscular systems to the test! Shoot, skate, climb, dribble and balance. Pretending to cook from the My Plate table reinforces healthy nutrition. Presented by Carolina Hurricanes.
Using cranks, levers and pulleys, students work together to keep the electricity flowing through a pretend power grid. Students learn where energy comes from and how to use it wisely. Presented by ABB.
Charge up hands-on play at STEM challenge stations! Make and test flyers that soar up wind towers, build and rebuild circuits, and engineer solutions to a variety of brain teasers. Presented by Duke Energy.
Artists at work! Imagination and self-expression unfold as students use high-quality materials to create artistic masterpieces. It’s all about the process!
