The Augmented Reality Sandbox allows users to create topography models by shaping real sand, which is then augmented in real time by an elevation color map, topographic contour lines, and simulated water.
Most exhibits require active participation by the visitor. Some require dexterity and/or creativity, but all result in better understanding and appreciation of scientific principles and concepts. 365 days of free admission to our exhibit floor is included with a membership! Over 70 hands on exhibits waiting for you to try and a variety of animals to meet. We are constantly building and adding more exhibits.
New at Headwaters Science Center, it’s the “Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator” – or “Artemis” for short. Join your friends for a multi-player adventure. Together you will navigate deep space and defend the sector from aliens bent on destroying everything in their path. “Artemis” is on loan to HSC for two years thanks to the Duluth Children’s Museum.
