Imagine! Build! Test! Improve! Connect the dots between engineering and nature as you explore what plants and animals have taught us about designing solutions for our modern world. As Eco-Engineers, get inspired by structures found in water, woods, soil, and sky!
Designed as a real-life -- but child-sized -- laboratory, Science + You allows children to explore how scientists impact health and wellness. Through interactive machinery, processes and technology, Science + You opens a window into the world of the research scientist and, through fun activities, shows how science keeps our bodies healthy.

Two hundred twenty million years ago, dinosaurs were beginning their domination of the Earth. But another group of reptiles was about to make an extraordinary leap: Pterosaurs were taking control of the skies and the story of how and why these mysterious creatures took to the air is more fantastic than fiction. In Flying Monsters, Sir David Attenborough, the world’s leading naturalist, sets out to uncover the truth about the enigmatic pterosaurs, whose wingspans of more than 40 feet were equal to that of a modern jet plane.
