Discovery Zone

Discovery Zone

Put on your monster safety equipment and sort recycling with the basketball-inspired sorting exhibit, can you keep score? Wander over the the rug city-scape to deliver recycling all around town in a recycling truck, cargo truck, or firetruck!

Enjoy some musical rhythms on recycling chime monsters or take a rest and read some great books in the storybook cafe. Finally, don’t forget to add your mark in the Creative Zone–grab a bottle cap and stick it wherever you’d like on the wall, lets see what it makes when it’s all filled in!

This exhibit is made possible by Al Serra Auto Plaza–THANK YOU!
