Exhibits you can expect to see at the Maryland Science Center in Baltimore, Maryland include:
The Kid’s Room
At the Kid’s Room exhibit you can expect to send boats down the river channel in water play, operate the fish cam in the submarine, and dress-up like a turtle. The Kid’s Room is a space dedicated to young children and learning through play.
There are bright colors and kid-sized objects to handle everywhere in this special place for the Science Center’s youngest visitors. The area accommodates even children under two called “Room to Grow.” Infants and toddlers can crawl around squishy waterbeds and play with big soft blocks.
Kids can build waterways and dams in the popular water play area, build Lego towers and structures out of plastic pipe, or immerse themselves in an undersea world complete with deep sea coves, a fishing pier, and tugboat helm.
Newton’s Alley is one of the Science Center’s most popular exhibits. See sound. Touch a cloud. Play a string less harp. Newton’s alley is located on Level one and filled with highly interactive discovery areas that reveal the phenomena of matter, energy, force and motion.
Our Place in Space
Look at earth both as our home planet and its place in our solar system and beyond. Take a journey to all our neighboring planets from Mercury to Pluto. Learn how stars are born and discover what happens when galaxies collide. Our Place in Space is also home to Science on a Sphere, which is a large visualization system that uses computers and video projectors to display animated data onto the outside of a sphere.
Your Body exhibit explores a day in the life of the body, with an emphasis on the sounds, smells, sights, and sensations of everyday life. Stand inside the heart and lungs and feel the rhythmic beats and breaths from your head to your toes.
Groundbreaking video technology follows a cherry tomato as it travels from the mouth to the stomach to illustrate the remarkable transformation from food to fuel.
This exhibit will help you understand what happens inside your body and you can connect your daily activities to your health, while having fun doing it.
Body, Space and Terralink
The link galleries are designed to keep up with the rapid flow of news and events in the world of science. They use state of the art technology and high tech multimedia to keep visitors connected to the latest developments.
BodyLink: Is a high tech environment accompanied by high touch experiences. You can test your nutrition I.Q., or monitor your body’s pulse and heart rate as you pedal a stationary bike. Watch video clips of the latest news from the world of healthcare and health science. Decode mysteries of DNA in the WetLab.
BodyLink is a media center, discovery room, and newsroom. BodyLink brings you the latest and greatest in Health Science and Healthcare. It is equipped with Internet-ready computers, media players, and satellite television and srruound-sound audio systems.
The most important resource in BodyLink is the knowledgeable, trained staffs of health science educators and community volunteers who serve as exhibit facilitators. The staff is present to share their excitement for Health science and to engage visitors in interesting dialogue.
SpaceLink: Is a high tech environment accompanied by high touch experiences. Construct a planetary rover. Try on a flight suit. Track the orbits of satellites. SpaceLink is part media center, part discovery room, and part newsroom that brings you the latest and greatest in Space and Aerospace Science. A knowledgeable and trained staff of Space and Aerospace Science educators and community volunteers are available as guides and to engage visitors in interesting dialogue to help ensure a fun, dynamic, and educational environment.
SpaceLink is the home to the Hubble Space Telescope National Visitor Center. You can keep up with the latest discoveries from this orbiting observatory that is constantly peering into the darkest reaches of space to unlock the clues to the origins of our universe.
TerraLink: Is like all the other Link galleries at Maryland Science Center in Baltimore, Maryland. It is a high tech environment with high touch experiences. Fly over images of local cities and cities around the world. Navigate from low-Earth-orbit to the top of your house using real data. Observe and disrupt a forming tornado with your hand.
As with the other link galleries there is always trained, knowledgeable staff from Earth science educator backgrounds and community volunteers to guide you and talk with you about your experiences at the TerraLink gallery.
