TOP 3 Things to See at the Science Museum
DATE: Open daily
Children under the age of nine, as well as their parents and caregivers, can explore science concepts via play in the spectacular multi-sensory Pattern Pod.
Children investigate the world in the same way as scientists do by attempting to anticipate what will happen next. If these events repeat themselves or have a pattern, it is frequently simpler to forecast what will happen next.
Children can produce symmetrical images on touch screens, explore water ripples without getting their feet soaked follow robot trails, and much more in Pattern Pod. They are inspired to detect and imitate patterns—or develop completely original ones—by engaging, entertaining exhibitions.
For nonstop entertainment, go to Pattern Pod on the museum’s ground level!
