Expand Your Child’s Mind at the Children’s Science Center


When you have to ward off cabin fever for both you and your little ones this year, don’t forget about the Children’s Science Center in Fairfax. This state-of-the-art facility has day’s worth of hands-on activities for everyone from toddlers to preteens, and some pretty interesting stuff that you’ll probably enjoy as well.

 Many of the programs focus on STEM activities, so they are as educational as they are fun. Kids can see science experiments, work a robotic arm and build circuits one day, then feed a seahorse, make practical crafts, or attend a day at Hogwarts on their next visit. Plus, the weekly calendar is packed with rotating exhibits and special programs to make every visit new and special. Choose from a daily admission price of $13, or consider becoming a member for added perks and benefits. The Children’s Science Center is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and is located in the lower level of Fair Oaks Mall.
