Science in Play2GO makes science personal, fun, participatory, and relevant - empowering kids and adults to learn together, and for life, all through the power of PLAY!

Designed by Kentucky Science Center specifically for ages 8 and under, with program opportunities for students of all ages, Science in Play2Go combines curiosity and critical thinking, creativity and problem-solving, with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (S.T.E.M.)

Science in Play2Go is built around the concept of “loose parts”- materials that can be re-imagined in countless ways—and open-ended play, allowing children to naturally develop 21st century learning and S.T.E.M. skills. Three key components of Science in Play2Go, which offer joyful and active learning for all:

Shapes & Stuff Store

A math-rich shopping experience in a store full of “stuff” invites the imagination with materials that drive highly open-ended learning. Shopping for shapes encourages inventiveness and flexibility as children explore everything from shape attributes and pattern recognition to geometric and numerical skill building.

Build-Your-Own Rollercoaster

An exploration in physics and engineering these roller coaster sections of different sizes and shapes can be manipulated in countless designs and configurations. This experience offers opportunities for predicting and testing everything from simply how a ball falls and rolls, to far more complex challenges.

Build Your World

Playing with large blocks sharpens planning and design skills and encourages young children to imagine blocks as representations of real world objects. Collaboration and imagination are key as blocks become boats, buildings, rocket ships, and even thrones.

The Science in Play exhibit will be available at the Main Library in LaGrange from March 4 through May 27, 2017.
