Learning about science in a museum is safer than experiencing it firsthand by accidentally ingesting a science textbook. Embrace science with today's Groupon: for $17, you get general admission for four family members at Sci-Quest Hands-On Science Center (up to a $34 value). This Groupon is good for two adults and two children.
Sci-Quest Hands-On Science Center engages students young and old with more than 100 interactive science, math, and technology exhibits, earning kudos from Huntsville Times readers as the area’s Best Family Attraction. A family four-pack includes general admission for two adults and two adults of the future, granting access to themed exhibits such as PlayMotion, an interactive projector that allows visitors to catch falling planets without the sinus aggravation of falling moon dust. Free live science demonstrations running everyday illuminate the salient variations between plant, animal, and bacterial cells while granting little learners microscopic views of cellular life events, such as ribosomal rugby matches.
Meanwhile, an early childhood house for scholars 7 and younger expands youthful horizons of basic science through hands-on activities. The harmonious music room acquaints kids with various instruments and encourages acrobatic renditions of Liszt etudes on a gigantic floor keyboard. Additional exhibits cover topics including the human body, earth sciences, electricity, and the bubbling hatred between baking soda and vinegar.
Sci-Quest Hands-On Science Center also houses the Immersive Theatre, featuring Virtual Vortex, a 3-D frolic through topics such as extreme weather ($3 admission not included in this Groupon). Kids can learn how and why tornadoes form, then attempt to teleport younger siblings to mythical lands plagued by flying primates and territorial wildebeests. Exhibits vary, so check the website for special events. Sci-Quest is open seven days a week and offers free parking for cars and pogo sticks.
Though Sci-Quest Hands-On Science Center sometimes offers discounted prices online for military members and their families, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
