Girls and boys, start your engines! The DCM Speedway is running full throttle through October 1!
Here’s the thing grown-ups need to know about the DCM Speedway—it’s an introduction to physics for children, wrapped in a playful format they love. This is what we do at the Delaware Children’s Museum—create family-oriented learning environments where children ages 1 to 12 can learn about science and the arts through play . . . what we used to call “just messing around.”
In the DCM Speedway, junior racers climb aboard bright-red racers that use an intriguing combination of lateral friction, force, and torque to propel them forward. It’s a great way to exercise young bodies and brains!
Adventures that are Grand
In DCM’s new “Grand Adventures” exploration series designed for grandparents and grandkids, we investigate some of the science found in your kitchen and dinner table. September’s installment, “Grand Adventures: Floating Fun,” runs through 2 pm today.
Join us for hands-on activities around the question, “Why does some fruit float and some sink?” Together you can see what scientists mean by “density,” experiment with different types of fruit, and make a floating fruit boat to take home.
“Grand Adventures” is developed around the idea that learning is more fun when you’re exploring the world and having fun with your loved ones, making new discoveries and memories as you laugh, talk, and play together.
Come play with us!
The Delaware Children’s Museum is the state’s only museum dedicated to children and their grown-ups, with hands-on exhibits and daily programs providing learning experiences in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics.
