Small Discoveries is geared toward encouraging learning, play and interaction among adults and children. Located near SCI’s front entrance, this exhibit is where SCI’s youngest visitors are introduced to experiences that encourage the natural scientist in children. 

The renovated Small Discoveries focuses on exploring the question, “Where does food come from?" Renovations include addition of a “Little Hands on the Farm” area where visitors will be introduced to farm-related activities, a remodeled Farmer’s Market to include new graphics, realistic replicas of healthy foods like fruits and vegetables and renovations to the Grant Wood House where children will bring home their healthy choices from the farmer’s market and role play making meals in the kitchen.
