Science City Daily Activities
April Theme: Superhero Science
Throughout the month, guests will learn how Science fiction allows us to dream of ways to make the impossible possible. Whether you have ever dreamt of flying or being invisible we will show you the science that will make it possible.
Activities are located throughout Science City. Guests are encouraged to participate in these hands-on activities.
