Matter Factory Exhibit
Step into a whimsical factory and stare straight into the future! The Children's Museum of Houston's Matter Factory gives visitors 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, children explore how matter matters in our daily lives. They experiment with different matter properties; test and sort materials based on their properties, and examine unique properties of emerging materials recently developed by scientists.
