The world of science is every child’s playground in the Collins Family My Big Backyard! Children will step into the backyard wonderland of an imaginative young inventor named CJ. Throughout CJ’s backyard children will encounter inventions that will inspire everyone, from the littlest scientist to the more seasoned of experimenters.
Youngsters can play with light, rainbows, mirrors and more in the greenhouse. The shed is filled with sound experiments, and the garage is a great place to discover the properties of magnets and work with electricity.
Tellus has not forgotten the youngest of all future scientists. They will be drawn to an interactive garden created just for them. With magnet games, sorting activities, raceways and more, exploring science will be a fun, engaging opportunity even for these little ones.
Of course no backyard is complete without trees, and this backyard is no exception. Our enormous walk-in tree features a special projection screen designed to educate visitors – big and small – about weather.
The Collins Family My Big Backyard is the place for young scientists to discover their world. All of the activities in the gallery are designed to inspire, challenge and educate children of all ages.
