Special activities include hovercraft rides, a planetarium show, and chemistry shows, all of which my kids enjoyed last time we went to Tech Fest. In addition, kids (and adults) can participate in hands-on activities like paper making, magnetic bridges, making slime, and more, and of course spend as much time in the museum as they wish.
