- Conservation Quest is an interactive, hands-on experience for children and adults showing what we all can do to keep the planet healthy now and for future generations. In this interactive exhibit participants will learn about energy – what it is, where it comes from, how we use it and why it’s so important to use it wisely. Conservation Quest was created by Stepping Stones Museum for Children as a part of its Healthy Children, Healthy Communities initiative.
- Making Space
Children’s ideas are our future. Children have an amazing sense of play, imagination, discovery, creativity and problem-solving. When given simple materials, their ideas can be brought to life in the form of artistic and useful inventions. In the spirit of the mission of lifelong learning, Making Space encourages creative experimentation and play. Events and programs are free with museum admission unless otherwise indicated.
