Fall is here and as the weather gets chillier in Cleveland, the Great Lakes Science Center is always a really fun way to spend some good quality family time indoors!
Now is an especially great time to get to the Great Lakes Science Center because there are some new interactive exhibits to check out.
The latest exhibit is called 2TheXtreme: Math Alive! It’s open now through January 2nd. There are approximately 40 interactive experiences which takes math into the applied worlds of design, engineering, technology and science (and helped to answer my daughter’s question, “What does MATH have to do with a SCIENCE center?”)
2theXtreme: MathAlive! is designed to appeal to visitors of all ages and levels of math ability. There is so much to do, you can spend hours at this exhibit alone.
Among the fun to be had, visitors can:
My family enjoyed trying out all the different stations. My daughter, who says she is not a fan of math, was able to see just how important math is even when it comes to her favorite sports, skate and snowboarding.
There really is so much to see and learn on this tour. If you haven’t taken the tour yet, you have two more weekends before it closes for 2015 (and then you’ll have to wait until May 2016). We loved it! It was so interesting and as long as you’re dressed appropriately for the weather, it’s a beautiful time of year to see the views of Lake Erie and the Northcoast Harbor from the ships perspective.
Here are some highlights of our tour but remember, there is still so much more to see than this:
The Cleveland Creates Zone helps make science, technology, engineering and math come alive for you. Through critical thinking, problem-solving, innovation and collaboration, the Cleveland Creates Zone inspires young and old to flex their mental muscles, use new ways of thinking and find creative solutions to solve the following challenges:
So many things to create! So little time! Just like real life! We all had our favorite stations. My daughter was bound and determined to make a faster race car and a more reliable rocket, while my son and husband were honing in on their parachute skills. Later we all collaberated on a shoe design. I needed all the help I could get even though I was armed with plenty of fabric, duct tape and safety scissors. My husband was creating a great moccasin when unfortunately, the announcement came across letting us know that it was already time for the Science Center to close.
Here are some highlights of the Cleveland Creates Zone:
