In the Smash Exhibit, you can explore nuclear science in many ways.  There are several on exhibits at Impression 5 that allow you to build atoms and discover how isotopes are made.  These models were created to simulate the research that is happening at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams at Michigan State University.

The Smash Exhibit is great for young kids, but what I found is that it is also great for older kids.  They have science related material that is college level, but it still allow young kids to learn as well.

This was a super fun exhibit to play with. You get the balls going and try to capture just certain colors. I enjoyed it as much as the 5 year old who played it.

This was my favorite exhibit.  There are two stations that allow you to release the balls and try to capture just certain colors.  It was like a race track of balls going around and around.
