Explore feelings, share, think, converse, and connect with a visit to XOXO, An Exhibit About Love & Understanding, a new travelling exhibit at the Museum until February 1. With eight unique neighborhoods, there's always something new to explore. In Creativity Connections learn about light, shadow, rhythm and texture, or explore sensory processes. Roll a ball down a ramp to explore gravity and movement in Make it Move or create a pipe structure in Build It, using real (not plastic) tools. Blow a bubble or splash at the watertables in Waterways and Bubbles, then dry off in the AirWorks wind tunnel. In AWEsome Electricity, children will discover what currents and power sources are and what they do. Head to the second floor to experience Math Connections or visit the Family Resource Center for storytime. Parents can take care of babies in any of the three Young Explorers, which are padded and specifically designed for children 2 and under. Visit the new S.M.A.R.T. Café on the lower level, where food becomes an opportunity for young children to learn about Science, Math, Art, Reading and Technology.
