A branch of the Austin Children’s Museum, The Thinkery is a play-based environment set up around the proponents of STEM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math), which is currently a large focus in the educational world. While children will appreciate the fun and intrigue of the exhibits at The Thinkery, parents can appreciate the ease of children learning through unforced hands-on activities! The activities at The Thinkery are geared toward children infant through 11 years old, although even adults can appreciate the fun and inquiry happening here as you engage with the wide variety of materials.
Visit the Light Lab, where investigations are situated within a darkened gallery and little explorers can test the impact of color, light, and shadows. Another favorite is the Currents exhibit, where children scientists get their hands wet discovering the connections between water and sound. Other exhibits include an Innovator’s Workshop where creativity can blossom, a Farmer’s Market great for pretend play for the littles, and an outdoor play area that includes a three-story climber as well as a small stream with water toys for exploration. The Thinkery is currently open Fridays through Sundays from 9:15 am – 3:15 pm.
Another great option for hands-on exploration is the Science Mill. Similar to The Thinkery, exhibits here are made for exploring and learning through engaging play and interaction. Build a custom race car to be raced on a 25-foot track, learn about wind and air pressure as you manipulate conditions to sail a sailboat across the sea, or make your way through an outdoor labyrinth. Budding scientists will also enjoy digging for fossils, operating a robotic hand, and constructing large creations with a variety of building materials.
