Every other year, the Science Center designs, develops and builds an exhibit that travels to each lobby of the elementary schools in Burlington.  These exhibits are smaller, home-made versions of exhibits you would see at a science museum.  The exhibits have a main theme and covers a variety of science curriculum topics to explore.  Teachers can bring their classes down during the school day and students can visit the exhibit on their way to lunch or while walking through the hallway.

This years current exhibit is called “The Science of Bears.”  We received a private donation of  taxidermy bears several years ago and decided it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience to have these bears travel to the schools.  The exhibit focuses on the natural science of bears and includes such topics as life cycles, characteristics/traits and adaptations.
