Think Science World is just about sprockets and pulleys, creepy crawlies and whimsical gadgets?

Think again. Pushing the boundaries of science education, Science World has just unveiled a provocative new exhibit on the Science of Sexuality (running through Sept. 2).  The self-guided display explores the stages of human sexual development, all the way from conception to first love and beyond.

More or less an interactive, visual version of “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex, But Were Afraid to Ask,” the exhibit is targeted both at young people 12 and up “and the not-so-young alike.” Basic questions about sexuality are answered in a “positive, frank and respectful manner” through games, videos and original multimedia.

Da Vinci Exhibit Opens at Science World, April 28

The genius behind The Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, who sketched out plans for a helicopter in the 15th century and is still regarded as the world’s first and foremost Renaissance man, is coming to Science World.

The exhibit opens on Saturday, April 28, and museum officials have remained tight-lipped about exactly what’s in store.  But from the few details that have leaked out, Da Vinci – The Genius looks absolutely spellbinding.  Continue reading:
