Discovery Cube OC hosts STEM-focused exhibit with Thomas & Friends: Explore the Rails

Discovery Cube OC hosts Thomas & Friends: Explore the Rails beginning on October 4th, 2014 through January 4, 2015. The 1500 square foot STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Math) -focused exhibit engages children and families in foundational skills that foster STEM literacy through playful learning experiences.  The exhibit incorporates foundational STEM practices that encourage thinking mathematically, making comparisons, experimenting to solve problems using a variety of methods and tools, thinking creatively and reflecting on actions and results.

Inside the exhibit, participants are invited to climb inside the cab and explore the engine's workings as well as fix Percy’s wobbly wheel by removing and replacing parts and experimenting to find a combination of wheels, rods and bolts that work. The exhibit also encourages collaboration and teamwork with other participants in helping load cargo and freight and getting Percy moving by loading the train with coal. 


Tickets can be purchased at Discovery Cube Orange County or online at www.discoverycube.org/oc . General admission prices are as follows: adult ($16.95), senior ($12.95), and children ages 3-14 ($12.95)
