Math and Science center

Great for elementary school age kids. Be prepared to spend lots of time here. Interactive activities. Kids don't want to leave! Inexpensive and educational.

As a Biologist and mother of 3, I was amazed by all the hands on learning stations for children of all ages. This is a gem, and deserves all the accolades it receives. My kids love all the simple, yet cleverly built stations that easily teach functions of biology, physics, and more.

Our family loves the Math and Science Center. Our children attend summer camps here and we often come during their Saturday Science Hour. This place is definitely worth a visit.

We took our 8 and 12 year old grandchildren to Grand Junction for the day and decided to spend some time here and they loved it. Tons of stations where they can do all sorts of things from blow cube shaped bubbles to petting a python to going inside of a camera. All hands on and fun. We had an... More

The Math and Science center is a very cool place to take the kids. They can learn all kinds of fun things there is about weather, nature, etc. by hands on displays. The kids and, as well as the parents will really enjoy learning all about the interesting things around us, and how they work. It's worth a visit.

This was great, affordable family fun in Grand Junction (way better than Banana's, or, God forbid, Chuck-e-Cheese!!) - my kids could have stayed for a whole afternoon messing around with gadgets and science demonstrations (and watching the giant cockroaches, hoping one might hiss!) - it was not just educational, but unexpectedly cool.

Stoped by and was underwhelmed by the buidling. The insdie is packed with simple science experiments that entertained the kids for a couple of hours. Worth the money and time if you are looking for a kid diversion.
