Spark!Lab opens Tuesday at Science City in Union Station, but summer campers got a sneak peek of the new attraction on Monday, trying such activities as the Towering Teeter Table, which encourages risk taking, among other things. Ten-year-old Peyton Carter of Kansas City (from left) prepared to break the teeter as Kya Vulgamott of Kansas City, 10, waited her turn and watched Joseph McCray of Kansas City, Kan., 12, successfully apply another block on the table.
