Located on Level 2, The Kemper and Ethel Marley Foundation Gallery

See what happens when you put your hands on science.

Humans are naturally curious and the science of observation helps us understand the natural world around us – how things work and why.


Bed of Nails
Press a balloon down on a bed of nails. Will it pop? No! With more than 1,000 nails, each nail supports only a fraction of the pressure so the nails won't hurt pop the balloon.

Giant Lever
Learn how levers give us a mechanical advantage in this giant game of tug-of-war. It's not about how hard you pull the rope, but where.

Pulley Power
Go for a ride in one of our three pulley chairs.
