Children get to make all kinds of shapes with elastic bands; design city scenes with geometric shapes; watch time-lapse videos of various areas in Chicago; play with magnets and test gravity by rolling balls along a vertical platform.

Habitat Park: Teach your child to appreciate their immediate natural surroundings and its various facets.

They can paint designs with water on slate walls or observe the life cycle of monarch butterflies. Children can even go underground through the giant tunnel or roll down the gentle berms.

Music Makers: If your children have an inclination for music, then this is the perfect exhibit to take them to. Allow your children to learn about melody and rhythm by helping them to make their own music box. Let them create their own special symphony by creating a musical mix of melody, harmony and rhythm.
