Visit the Lewes Ferry Terminal Playground
Playgrounds are filled with science and physics - pendulums, ramps, levers, forces, gravity, friction, balance, etc. AAA State of Play does a beautiful job capturing, explaining, and providing wonderful examples of all of these elements on their site. A link to their playground science page is noted below in the related links section. So as you head off to the playground, prepare your future STEM-ologist to become a brilliant expert in physics. Ask him or her to identify all the things they see at the playground that is a part of science...and then ask them how they could make it even better! It's always fun to hear a kids answer to an open-ended science question. Their imagination could make them a nobel prize winner some day!

Ideas, Notes, & Tips
This playground is in full sun.
The ferry terminal actually has A LOT to offer! You can watch the ships load and unload cars. You can have a bite to eat by the water. You can play a free game of miniature golf. You can grab some ice cream in the little gift shop. Oh yeah, and you can play at the little playground. It's more of a destination than just a playground.
