Little Albert’s Lab

The future belongs to the children of today.  Little Albert’s Lab will help children of all ages grasp the concepts of physics, the basis of all sciences.  The Lab features a child-size robotic puppet of Albert Einstein that answers questions to make science fun and understandable.  Exhibit components include a Hot Light Display, Snake Pendulum, Compression Wave, Standing Wave, Chaotic Pendulum and numerous Discovery Boxes, all designed to peak an interest in the basics of science. Children learn through doing and what better way of learning than having fun in the Museum’s Lab!
