WonderWorks Orlando is celebrating National STEM Day on Monday, November 8 to honor the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math.

What’s Happening:

  • To make the day special, WonderWorks Orlando will be hosting science labs throughout the building to give guests an up-close look at the science behind several of the attraction’s popular exhibits, such as the principles of press, temperature, density, origami, and more.
  • This is the second year of this celebration, with the labs being a special addition to the over 100 hands-on, interactive, science-based exhibits guests can explore all year.

Science and education are at the heart of our attractions and exhibits, and so we’re looking forward to amplifying that experience for our guests. It was great seeing guests get a closer look at the science behind some of our most popular exhibits, like our Bed of Nails and our Titanic ice bucket.”
