Grow It!

"Grow It!"

Third Floor | Kirby Science Discovery Center

Explore "Grow It!" which features more than 3,000 square feet of agriculture-themed exhibits. The interactive experiences, as part of our floor dedicated to all things South Dakota, will inspire children to connect, engage and learn while having tons of fun.  

  • Climb into a tractor cab and imagine a day in the life of a farmer by driving through a field and controlling a throttle, lights and sounds.
  • Pick crops of corn, soybeans, sunflowers and turnips for inspection at the Crop Lab for pretend play in the Barn Marketplace.
  • Explore tunnels to see what happens underground. Discover the inside life of bugs and the valuable role they play in soil health.
  • Learn about biofuel and animal feed.
  • Feel the sun, wind and other different types of South Dakota weather in a 4D theater experience.
