Step into a whimsical factory and stare straight into the future! The Children's Museum of Houston's Matter Factory offers a glimpse into the concepts of materials science, including properties of matter and potential uses for different substances and smart materials.

 

With 1,350 square feet of exhibit space, explore how matter matters in our daily lives. Experiment with different properties of matter, test and sort materials based on their properties, and examine unique properties of emerging materials recently developed by scientists.

- Explore how molecules and atomsare the building blocks of matter 
-
Investigate materials and solve "factory" problems
-
Test the density, conductivity and viscosity of different materials
Interact with what scientists call "smart" materialsmaterials which have properties that can be dramatically changed!

Also, explore the science of nanotechnology at the Super Small Matter Lab!
