Volunteers acts as guards, protecting, and resetting the exhibits (for example, the archeological dig, where kids can brush sand away from a fossil), and presenting subjects such as rocket travel. There are buttons everywhere, tests of skill and speed to demonstrate scientific experiments in a fun way. Exhibitions change regularly.
