The kids will soon be out of school for their winter break. But that doesn’t mean it’s “tis the season” for kids to be without reason! The holidays are a great time to exercise the mind.
Discovery Center provides the perfect holiday mix…family fun, physical activity and even a little science! And December 26-30 Discovery Center will be celebrating winter with extra fun during Holiday Hoopla, when we’llmerge hands-on crafts with science, math and engineering. We’ve got a rainbow of fun in our drop-in workshop space. Pick up a hammer or grab a screwdriver and put your imagination in gear. See what you can construct using recycled materials, and take what you make from bird feeders and toys to decorations and musical instruments! Then have a blast building with LEGOs, cardboard, wire, and foam! We’ll also have live science demonstrations each day.
The extra activities will take place 11:00 am to 3:00 pm each day. Holiday Hoopla activities are included with admission to the Museum– $9/person and free to Members and children age 1 and younger. Planetarium shows are $1.00 for the general public and $0.50 for Discovery Center members.
Discovery Center will be open until 3 pm on Dec. 24, closed Dec. 25, and open regular hours (10:00 am to 5:00 pm) throughout the remainder of the holiday season including New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
