Now Showing: ‘Motion Mania!’

From January 16 to May 15, 2016, SciWorks is hosting “Motion Mania,” a traveling exhibit in which visitors can test their design skills as they create roller coasters, racetracks and superhighways … all while learning about friction, force and energy. This exciting hands-on exhibit helps participants develop their skills of observation, investigation, questioning and experimentation as they discover what factors affect how things move. Developed by the Ontario Science Centre, Motion Mania! is sponsored locally by Mercedes Benz of Winston-Salem.

SciWorks offers many permanent, hands-on exhibits and educational programs correlated to the NC Essential Standards for Science. To download the SciWorks Educators’ Guide, click here. For field trip information, call (336) 714-7105 or email Christy Ferguson at Christy Ferguson.
