Our philosophy starts with the simple belief that kids are capable of incredible things. Our job is to nurture that ability; our goal is to support kids' healthy development. Play is how kids learn--here, it is in both a STEM-rich environment and inviting outdoor experience.
Visit » Calendar » Opening Day: Velocity!
Balls, ramps, jumps, loops—and physics fun! Race golf balls along winding, sloping, and looping tracks and explore how gravity, friction, speed, and acceleration affect the velocity and trajectory of moving objects.
Five distinct activity areas—a Roller Coaster and Serpentine, Jump Track, Loop Track, Half-Pipe, and Dish—demonstrate the speed, trajectory, velocity, and momentum of moving objects. Using golf balls, kids and their adults can create experiments and compare results with data visualization software that captures multiple test runs; animated definitions of key physics principles correspond to videos of real-world examples.
Love balls and ramps? Come experience Velocity!
Ribbon-cutting will be held at noon. For more information visit our Exhibits section.
Velocity Engineering Lab will be located in the Middlesex Savings Bank Community Gallery on the Museum's first floor from January 12 through April 28th.
