“Hands-on science provides visitors with the opportunity to test and explore the sciences by following their curiosity,”  comments the museum’s Education Coordinator, Tiffany Martin. “They’re forging connections with the world around them. Essentially they’re learning by doing.”

The Hands-On Science Area is open on scheduled Saturdays throughout the year.  Activities will be rotated, so return visitors can enjoy new materials and challenges.  Visitors to the Hands-On Science Area are also welcome to explore the museum’s permanent exhibits.  At Spark! Imagination and Science Center, children and their grown-ups play with our many hands-on and interactive exhibits. Visitors can explore Nanoscience and Space Weather in our Eureka! Science Center; practice engineering skills in the Engineer It! exhibit; play dress-up and do a puppet show in our Imagination Station; and so much more. Regular admission applies.

Spark! Imagination and Science Center is a United Way of Monongalia and Preston County funded partner.
