Six Simple Machines Discovery Zone
Constructed in 2016, the six simple machines considering the foundation of mechanics have been incorporated into a functional, playground learning environment! Also housing our iconic windmill, the Discovery Zone demonstrates a compound renewable energy machine by combining solar and wind to power a groundwater pump into the Appalachian Microhydro-Electric Powerscrew.
The Discovery Zone Playground is open Saturdays May-December, Kids Days (Wednesdays June-September), and weekdays during the summer. Visit our events page or call our office for more information.
