ScienceWorks' exhibits touch on a multitude of fascinating phenomena; exploring energy, anatomy, chemistry, perception, motion, engineering and more. Performances and activities change frequently, offering something new every time you visit. Some of our state-of-the-art exhibits include:
See a live bee hive where bees travel in and out of their bee hive through a clear tube providing access to the outdoors, flowers and trees for pollination. Watch trails of bees exiting and returning with pollen visible on their little feet. A magnifying camera, donated by Ashland Kiwanis, is on a telescoping arm that can be adjusted to anywhere on the glass bee hive enclosure. The magnified image projects onto an adjoining television so you can see the eyes, wings, bodies and feet of the bees up close. Look for the queen bee and watch how honey is made. Found in the Discovery Lab, the bee exhibit is available for all visitors to the museum to see.
