The Hands-On Laboratory is a fun, interactive learning laboratory program that encourages visitors of all ages to explore various topics in the laboratory sciences using many of the same tools and techniques as real scientists. Topics vary monthly, ranging from chemistry to genetics to nanotechnology to microbiology.
Stop by during program hours for ongoing activities and investigations. The Hands-On Laboratory is open on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings during the school year and Saturday afternoons year-round. View the Museum's daily schedule for up-to-date program times and topics.
