Pause|Play at Fleet Science Center
No Adulting Allowed!
Pause|Play at Fleet Science Center is the newest exhibition! An invitation for the young and the young-at-heart to leave the digital world behind, hit pause on their busy lives and recapture the nostalgia of play. Science has shown that play has a number of cognitive, social, emotional and physical benefits at any age—but we think it’s just downright fun!
The exhibition features some of your favorite playground activities and gives them a scientific twist.
- Clock your speed as you slip down a 15-foot-high, 31-foot-long slide.
- Discover the Coriolis effect while spinning on the merry-go-round.
- Learn about Newton’s Second Law of Motion in a demonstration of your mad hopscotch skills.
- Find out if you can ride a tricycle with square wheels.
- Play hide-and-seek with color-distortion lenses.
- And enjoy many more incredible experiences!
Pause|Play takes your favorite childhood pastimes and brings them to a modern indoor space that has just one rule:
NO ADULTING ALLOWED!
