Challenge Your Brain at Sciencenter’s Fall Exhibition
“Brain Teasers 2” Opens September 27

ITHACA, NY – Wake up your noggin, tinker with your thinker, and test your problem-solving skills at the Sciencenter’s fall exhibition, “Brain Teasers 2” opening Saturday, September 27.

“‘Brain Teasers 2’ is designed to sharpen problem-solving skills and encourage collaboration, all while providing plenty of hands-on fun,” says Teresa Bell, public and media relations manager.

The community is invited to tease their brains during the exhibition opening weekend, Saturday, September 27, 10 am – 5 pm, and Sunday, September 28, 12 pm – 5 pm. Throughout the weekend families can stimulate their neurons even more with hands-on activities, like optical illusions, developed by the Sciencenter. The exhibition and opening weekend activities are included with regular museum admission.


Created and toured by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, “Brain Teasers 2” offers an array of hands-on puzzles that encourage kids to think outside of the box, and perhaps even give them new appreciation of what their brains can do.

Guests will be challenged by brain twisters, mathematical conundrums, geometric pattern arrangement, and much more. To solve these puzzles, kids must tap into their creative thinking and use problem solving strategies to look for patterns, think ahead, set aside preconceived ideas, and look at problems from different perspectives.
The Sciencenter inspires excitement for science through interactive exhibits and programs that engage, educate and empower. The hands-on museum offers guests of all ages more than 250 exhibits, educational programs, a gift shop, and seasonal outdoor science park. The museum is open Tuesday – Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, and Sunday from noon to 5 pm. Admission is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors, $6 for children (3 – 17 years), and free to members and toddlers (0 – 2 years).
