I love the Sci-Tech Discovery Center and if you haven’t seen the Math Midway Exhibit…go now!
They are hosting several events that I thought you might be interested in. Here is some information that they provided about upcoming fun.
Late Night @ Sci-Tech on December 10, 2010: Good news for parents this holiday season: Sci-Tech Discovery Center is now offering a much needed option for them to complete all of the sundry to-do’s on their list. Late night at Sci-Tech allows busy parents time to enjoy a night on the town while their children tackle hands-on discovery experiences, exploration, and inspiring activities. Designed for children ages 5-12, the next Late Night at Sci-Tech is scheduled for Friday, December 10 from 6-10 pm, and rest assured, the Discovery Team will spark the children’s imaginations with an evening of structured Mind-Stretching Fun. The cost for Sci-Tech members is just $25 for the first child and only $15 for additional siblings. For non-members, the cost is $30 for the first child while additional siblings are $20/each.
It's so important for parents to have some time to themselves, whether to shop or to relax, explains Erica Yaeger, Executive Director, Sci-Tech Discovery Center. For families, this is the best of both worlds. We ™ll provide a dynamic evening filled with science and math fun for the kids while you can have a night out for yourselves or with friends.
Astronaut Training @ Sci-Tech December 11, 2010: Get ready to reach for the skies with Sci-Tech Discovery Center’s Astronaut Engineer It Saturday! Launching on December 11 and partnering with Astronaut Training Center (ATC), Sci-Tech will rocket kids to new worlds by helping them don space suits, visit the moon, and simulate work in zero gravity through a Precision Air Bearing Floor. This Astronaut-in-Training workshop will begin at 10 am, and children ages 6 to 13 are welcome. The cost is free to the community.
Sci-Tech Discovery Center’s Engineer It Saturdays are designed for kids to help foster problem solving capabilities through fun, 2-hour workshops. During this time, children are led to discuss problems scientists face, learn about how to solve those problems, and tackle hands-on experiments in an application format.
Sci-Tech Discovery Center’s Engineer It Saturdays are extremely fulfilling to create, plan, and offer to our community, states Erica Yaeger, Executive Director, Sci-Tech Discovery Center. We are thrilled to be working with the ATC folks to bring such a one-of-a-kind training opportunity for kids.
Discovery Camps @ Sci-Tech December 21-23 and 28-30, 2010: Sci-Tech Discovery Center offers exciting Discovery Camps in the areas of science, math and technology through the upcoming November and December holiday seasons, allowing campers a dynamic, hands-on experience complete with activities, games, and themed demonstrations.
Designed to spark the curiosity of children, the Discovery Camps cover a wide variety of topics, including subjects such as Math Midway, Pirate Science, and Medieval Science, just to name a few. The camps themselves will be offered December 21st through December 23rd, and December 28th through December 30th and are two hours in length. Children ages pre-K to 5th grade are invited to attend, and each camp is only $15/child for Sci Tech Discovery members and $20/child for non-members. Children are encouraged to bring a sack lunch and stay all day for multiple camps. Sci Tech Discovery Staff will lunch with campers.
Sci-Tech Discovery Center is excited to offer Discovery Camps to the Metroplex over the upcoming holiday season, explains Erica Yaeger, Executive Director, Sci-Tech Discovery Center. Having recently reopened our newly remodeled facility this fall, we are thrilled to continue our mission to deliver inspiring, challenging programs to our children, helping to equip them to learn new concepts while having mind stretching fun.
