Wonder Years Virtual Tour
The Science Museum of Minnesota, in collaboration with the University of Minnesota has developed an interactive exhibition called Wonder Years the Science of Early Childhood Development. In this exhibition, which is funded by the National Science Foundation, visitors can learn all about the lives of young children and what science can tell us about how their brains think and learn.
