Build fountains, float boats and explore the swirling, whirling ways of water! Splash and play to explore the fun of fluid dynamics.
Puddles, oceans, streams, rain and the kitchen sink... water is intrinsically fascinating. In Water Ways, children and their adult friends explore the ways water moves (fluid dynamics) by watching it, touching it and redirecting it. Children tumble boats and balls down the waterfall or float them safely through the lock system. Kids and grown-ups work together to build mazes to redirect the flow of water, use their problem solving skills to construct elaborate fountain systems, and watch the water rise in the clear cylinders as they use their muscles to pump it up. A book nook contains carefully chosen books exploring water science and filled with water-inspired poetry and stories.
Water Ways is recommended for children age 3 and up - and their adult friends. Smocks help keep kids dry, benches provide a place for grown-ups to take a break, and play guides are on hand to encourage fun and learning.
