Experience the wonder and excitement of science! Whatever your age, all you have to bring is a sense of curiosity about the world around you as you get ready to experiment, build, observe, and discover. From the challenge of the two-story grapevine climber to the enthralling Water Works, WonderLab has over 50 hands-on science exhibits inside and outside in the garden that will capture your imagination and make learning fun! Exhibits reinforce educational concepts and skills set forth by Indiana Academic Standards and also incorporate principles of universal design. Note that some exhibits featured on the website occasionally are moved to different places in the museum or into temporary storage to make room for new experiences.
