SEE Science Center

How often do children sit in a science classroom, bored by what their teachers are explaining? Much too often! This will never happen at the SEE Science Center where exhibits, demonstrations, and displays help children and adults understand the world around us. Robots, gyroscopes, lights, electricity - all can be experienced at the Center. One of the most popular exhibits combines history with science and fun. The largest permanent LEGO minifigure structure in the entire world resides in the SEE Science Center. It depicts the Amoskeag Millyard at the height of its power as the largest producer of textiles in the world. The scale, 55:1 matches the scale of the LEGO people to make the exhibit as accurate as possible.
