Why wait until you grow up?
Kids can be what they want now in KidZone! In this special play area for children ages 7 and younger and their caregivers, young visitors use their imaginations to explore the exciting world of science.
Don't miss our Splash! water experience, where kids can build and race their own boats and experiment with pipes and tubing to change the flow of water! They can also zoom across the sky in an airplane and race through the streets of Louisville in an ambulance. In a spaceship, they'll explore the far reaches of the galaxy. Along the way, they'll discover the wonders of water and build their own creations in the construction zone.
The Science Depot, located in KidZone is a friendly, kid-sized workshop where children and adults can initiate science experiments and projects alone, together, or with the aid of Science Center staff. The Science Depot provides changing materials and science tools for ongoing, enriched science discovery. These monthly science themes encourage inquiry into different topics that include nature, big & small, transportation, all about me, physics & motion, animals, architecture, and machines.
KidZone is open during regular science center hours abd is designed for parent/child interaction, and all children must be accompanied by an adult.
Groups of 10 or more still require reservations at least one week in advance and must be accompanied by one chaperone for every 10 children.
