Force Month at Great Lakes Science Center

This April, get moving and explore the push and pull of forces at the Science Center! All activities are included with general admission unless otherwise noted.

Force & Motion Science Show

Tuesday - Friday: 1 p.m.
Saturday - Sunday: 2 p.m.
Forces are with us as we explore Isaac Newton’s three laws of motion using a fire tornado, a liquid nitrogen engine, and a gravity defying finale!

STEM Storytime & Lab

Wednesday: 11 a.m.
Perfect for little scientists! Join our STEM staff for a special story and hands-on activities! Our youngest visitors will discover that to get things moving, you need force - either a push or a pull. They will explore this concept with magnets, dominoes and mini catapults! Recommended for children ages 0-5.

String Resonance Cart Activity

Tuesday - Saturday: 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Sunday: 1 – 4 p.m.
Explore what sound waves, frequency and resonance can tell us about guitar strings and other elements of music.

Family Dissection Workshop: Owl Pellet Dissection ($10 per person, $8 members)

Saturday - Sunday: 1 p.m.
Learn about an owl’s diet and how they digest their food by examining owl pellets. Can you figure out what the owl ate from what it left behind? Dissection workshops are for visitors ages 7 and older. Adult supervision is required. Register here.

Great Lakes Science Center’s hands-on, head-to-head engineering fundraiser Design & Build returns for its 11th annual competition Saturday, May 21 from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

On the day of the competition, teams of two to eight individuals are given a design challenge, and all the materials needed to solve it. They must then race against the clock, and the other teams, to see who can design, build and then test the most successful solution to the challenge. Teams compete in one of two categories: Youth (middle through high school students), or Corporate (adult teams or college students). Science Center guests on the day of the event are invited to check out the competition and help cheer the teams on to victory!

“Design & Build is one of the best days of the year here at the Science Center,” said President & CEO Dr. Kirsten Ellenbogen. “The staff develops exciting challenges for the teams to tackle year after year. We truly enjoy watching each team come up with their own unique solution to the challenge. Last year, Lincoln Electric topped the Corporate category and the Youth team champion was from Ranger High-Tech Academy. We are looking forward to another inspiring day of creative competition this year.”

Design & Build gives the community the opportunity to engineer victory and construct a brighter future fueled by STEM learning. Your organization and employees can make a direct impact on the next generation of doctors, engineers, researchers and astronauts! The Design & Build fundraiser is a great opportunity for a corporate team-building exercise, a group outing for a college science club or class, or for families who love a unique challenge.
