Most people in Massachusetts have heard about the Children’s Museum, the Museum of Science, and the New England Aquarium. What a lot of people don’t know is that there are places to learn about science all over Massachusetts. You don’t need to take a long drive, pay expensive fees, or wait in long lines if you go to a small local science venue.
Although there are many places like this in MA, this post features The Discovery Museums in Acton, MA. Hands-on activities are one of the best ways to understand science and, “The Science Branch of The Discovery Museums is designed to move children through scientific processes through observation, interaction, hypothesis, and discovery,” as stated on their site. The museums have an eight foot water vortex, an instrument called the Slap-A-Phone, and lots of other cool exhibits! You can even check out a shipwreck!
Getting involved is how your science interests peak. This is just one way to do it!
