Children enjoying a few of our great exhibits.
What’s the one thing you remember as a kid growing up in school? Field Trips! But in today’s economy field trips are quickly becoming an expensive activity of the past. Think of it – permission slips, busing issues and fuel expense, planning lunch, lost classroom time – along with admission fees that really limit the number of students that can participate.
Our “mobile museum” project – the Kidz Science Safari – from the University of Texas at Tyler and the Ingenuity Center – solves all of those issues while bringing the “hands-on” learning experience of a children’s museum right to your gymnasium!

Our exhibits include the
Bubble Tower, where kids lift a bubble around themselves;
Airways, a physics
demonstration that pushes colorful balls all around a maze of clear
tubes that students absolutely love;
Gravity Wall, where
students create a pathway of twists and turns and then test their
design using small balls and the force of gravity;
Human Biology allows
students to examine a skeleton and peek into the human body;
Magnetism employs several
ball bearings drawn by magnets to travel through a maze along with a
cartoon portrait that the kid's apply the “hair, moustache and
beard” to by using a magnet and iron filings; Our
Giant Microscope allows
the students to examine a nice collection of bugs, flowers, feathers
-- and any other object they'd like to see "up close" - on a large
21" screen; the Plasma Ball demonstrates an invention of Tesla as well as one of the
states of matter;
Conductivity has the students compete to see who can complete
the course without closing the circuit and lighting the light; The
demonstrates how invisible particles of light can propel an object -
and the brighter the light, the more absorption/repulsion of
particles; The Bernoulli
Exhibit demonstrates air pressure in a wonderful, yet simple
activity; Geometric Shapes has the student create anything from letters to
numbers to trapezoids, squares, triangles - whatever they choose-
using jersey loops on a really large pegboard.
Domino Race is just that
- an area where kids set up dominos in patterns, going up and down
"steps" and then with a push - send the dominos crashing into each
other while all the time learning about engineering, motion and
force. Plus there is our Dino
Dig with dinosaur bones, claws and teeth that simulates the
search for fossils. And, of course, we are
ALWAYS adding more
exhibits as we evolve and expand this amazing project.
