  • I took my Grandson to visit the Discovery Space recently. We had fun with a lot of the science experiements. Some were not working :(

We had a preschooler and an elementary student with us. Even the adults of the group were entertained. It's away from the Penn State campus, near the high school football stadium.
  • Small but lots of great things to experiment with!
