From Here to There at LICM | Kids Out and About Long Island

From Here to There at LICM

Lift, launch and levitate as you encounter the laws of motion in action through familiar and futuristic transportation vehicles. Come from there to here to learn how things move on land, sea and air! As you travel throughout the exhibit, you’ll encounter familiar modes of transportation like boats, planes and trucks to futuristic transportation modes like hovercrafts. Eleven hands-on exhibit components make learning about gravity, friction and the laws of motion fun!
