Hands-on learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties

Where Seattle - - WHERE NOW -

Look­ing and lis­ten­ing are great, but some­times you just want to reach out and touch some­thing. For the more tac­tile among us, Seat­tle has plenty of op­tions where you can try your hand at dif­fer­ent ex­er­cises. The Pa­cific Sci­ence Cen­ter is a pioneer in these kinds of ac­tiv­i­ties—test your re­ac­tion time, learn about cur­rents by play­ing in wa­ter, spin a 2-ton gran­ite ball and ride a bike pre­car­i­ously bal­anced on a rail, just for starters. Else­where in Seat­tle Cen­ter, an in­ter­ac­tive wall on the Space Nee­dle’s Ob­ser­va­tion Deck lets you look at the his­toric pho­tos you’re most in­ter­ested in and even add your own. Lo­cated just across the street from the Seat­tle Cen­ter cam­pus, the Gates Foun­da­tion Visi­tor Cen­ter is also big on in­ter­ac­tiv­ity, with thought­pro­vok­ing ac­tiv­i­ties that high­light the biggest prob­lems—and po­ten­tial so­lu­tions—around the world.
