We retired to Grand Junction in 1998. I was a mechanical engineer and taught apprentice precision machinists for 30 some years. We visited the Math and Science Center many times, but have only followed media reports lately, and they tell me that the center is alive and well. Visit Grand Junction. We have monuments, we have mesas, we have wine,... More

Hands-on experiments on popular topics and probably an issue or two you yourself have always wondered about. Experiments are well documented with instructions and explanation of the science behind them and all are in working order. Volunteers are helpful. Plan on about an hour, it is a good experience that is different.

My 6 yr old son and I went here to see what it's like. What a great place! Lots and lots of hands on experiments and activities. The volunteer explained everything to my son and was so patient with his questions. My son could've spent a lot longer here if we'd had the time.

Seriously, kids, now and then, need something besides - go outside, read a book, watch a video... when that need arises, take them to the Math and Science Center. It's a hands on learning experience. The great thing is - the kids will have so much fun they won't realize it's a school in sheep's clothing.

My kids had so much fun here. There are many hands on activities to do. It wasn't crowded when we went so my kids were able to take their time with all of the activities. The staff wast there to help, but you are free to explore at your own pace. Fun, educational activity

Great for elementary school age kids. Be prepared to spend lots of time here. Interactive activities. Kids don't want to leave! Inexpensive and educational.

As a Biologist and mother of 3, I was amazed by all the hands on learning stations for children of all ages. This is a gem, and deserves all the accolades it receives. My kids love all the simple, yet cleverly built stations that easily teach functions of biology, physics, and more.
