Last Saturday June 16th the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center (The Fleet) opened it's newest exhibit! 

This exhibit combines some of their all-time favorites with never-seen-before interactive exhibits from San Francisco's Exploratorium. This collection features opportunities to explore mechanic, motion, math, hearing, electricity and many other interconnected areas of science. 

Look for new challenges with the Bicycle Wheel Gyro, Strobe Flower and Magnetic Wave Machine and enjoy the return of popular favorites the Whisper Dishes, Tornado and Pedal Generator.

Find where the Balancing Ball will float to on a stream of air blowing out of a tube, generated by a large fan beneath it. Ride the Bicycle Wheel Gyro and see how any object that spins will hold to is axis, until a force is applied from outside. 

This exhibit also features a Giant Chair which will show the perspective on how the world looks to a small child. 

Gallery admission {includes access to all 7 exhibit galleries} is:

Adults $11.75

Children $9.75

Seniors $9.75

The Fleet's summer hours are Monday - Thursday from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and Friday & Saturday from 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. and Sundays 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. for more detailed information click here
