The Museum of Discovery and Science (MODS) will host Winter Wonderlab Science Weekends in December to help guests understand the winter weather elements, including snow, sleet and ice. The labs will also delve into the different states of matter of water and how it changes from ice to gas and explain why the Florida climate is drastically different from many other places worldwide.
Other interactive activities include:
- Exhibits, Shows and Demos: Practice your aim with Science Park “Snowball” target shooting, enjoy Winter Wonderlab activities and watch a Nitro Show.
- Animal Encounters: Meet animals that call the Museum their home and don’t have to hibernate like many others to survive the cold winter temperatures.
- Watch an IMAX film on the GIANT Screen: The Last Glacier, The Arctic, Everest, Antarctica, Arctic: Our Frozen Planet and more!
- Just for early learners (ages 0-6): Observe which material melts ice faster, how a snowstorm can appear in a jar, experience misty bubbles and create snowball paintings and winter magic watercolors.
The Winter Wonderlab Science Weekends occur Dec. 10-11, Dec. 17-18 and Dec. 24-25 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays. The exhibit is free with museum admission, which includes all exhibits, live science demonstrations and one IMAX documentary film. Tickets can be purchased at the Museum’s box office upon arrival or online at mods.org/tickets.
