EcoTinker Science Stations

OPEN DAILY MARCH 15 – MAY 31, 2021

Head outdoors this spring and explore our tech and tinker stations – 5 stations where you can learn about recycling and consumer science. Consider questions like: what is trash? Where does it go? How does it affect the world around us? What can I do to make a difference?

Imagination Playground will return this year. We are proud to incorporate Imagination Playground materials into our stations for amazing educational engineering play. 

Purchase admission tickets in advance to secure a date and time for your visit. Members may also make advanced reservations. Spots are timed and limited, however we may be able to accommodate walk-ups based on daily visitation.


Check out all five stations:

Take a look at what it takes to make a landfill

Put on your engineering cap and model a landfill and compare it with a traditional dump.

A Purpose to the Package

Use math and critical thinking to determine the purpose behind packaging of products we use every day.

Fixing and Remixing

Use big blue Imagination Playground blocks to engage in free play and discover the benefits of modular design.

Play with Polymers

Experiment with different types of plastic to learn more about their properties and how to properly recycle them.

Closing the Loop

Learn where you fit into the recycling loop and witness scientific innovation at work!
