  • This is a small place tucked away in a mall. That made it easy to have lunch later as there were lots of options. The space is very inviting and was perfect for our 7 and 4 year old grandchildren...

  • Exceptional staff!! Everyone here was so kind and so nice with children. They did a great job and we’re so great with my 3 year old. Honestly this place is probably better suited for years 5 and up but nevertheless they did a great job. They way they spoke to my daughter specifically showed that they cared about making science cool so they get five stars from me.
  • This place is GREAT. There is a wonderful variety of hands on, fun learning experiences for kids! My daughter and I had lots of fun with the huge building foam blocks/tubes and we did a couple cool science experiments! We also enjoyed the energy area (for example, seeing which mini wind turbine we could make the most powerful). The staff is friendly and engaging. Highly recommend! We will definitely be going back.
