Marian Koshland Science Museum

Marian Koshland Science Museum Review

Sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences, this small but engaging museum invites older kids and adults to interact with current scientific issues in a thought-provoking setting. Visitors have the opportunity to use science and math to solve problems and engage in conversation. In Earth Lab: Degrees of Change you'll examine the energy sector and employ strategies to lower carbon dioxide emissions to a level that will significantly reduce the impact of climate change. The Life Lab takes a look at decisions you make throughout your life and explores how the brain develops. There's a driving simulator, a 3-D look inside the brain, plus exhibits on the science of healthy eating through the life span. Though the interactive exhibits are fun and educational, they are aimed at ages 12 and up.
