Thanks to the generosity of BASF, Discovery Place Kids-Huntersville will offer BASF’s Kids’ Lab one weekend per month beginning in January 2022. BASF employees will join Discovery Place educators on the Museum floor and deliver pop-up science experiments for all visitors to enjoy as part of their Museum experience.
The BASF Kids’ Lab program enhances science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) related education for students, creating fun with chemistry and encouraging kids to explore the connections between chemistry and the world around them. More than 250,000 students have participated in the award-winning BASF Kids’ Lab programs throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

“We are grateful to have the support of an amazing community partner like BASF, who is dedicated to bringing quality STEM education to the diverse and growing Charlotte region,” said Tifferney White, Chief Learning Officer of Discovery Place. “Through their Kids’ Lab curriculum, we are able to offer additional hands-on science learning, outside of our regular exhibits and programming, to Museum visitors.”
Discovery Place Kids – Huntersville is open to the public from 10:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and will offer Kids’ Lab on consecutive Saturdays and Sundays once per month from January – July. Advance reservations are required to visit the Museum and can be made online at kids.discoveryplace.org/plan.
