There is also a giant paper marbling station led by Janet Carroll, a new and improved oobleck run that is now (12 feet) long, and a giant plinko game. The fabulous musical staircase, and musical fruit are back, as well as the theremin, the Feats of Physics Show (which involves a bed of nails and so much more), liquid nitrogen ice-cream, balloon microbes and molecules, Mother’s Day cyanotype cards, and robots doing the long jump will all be on hand.
