I recently had the opportunity and pleasure to visit the Discovery Science Center for a view of all of the events being offered during the holidays. I made it a point to first visit The Science of Gingerbread Exhibit. This exhibit is unique as local schools, businesses, families, and science center members create gingerbread sculptures and elaborate pieces of art to display at the Science of Gingerbread Exhibit.
This year over 140 entries were received in nine categories. All of the items are judged and awarded and are on display through the entire month of December through January 6th. For at least 7 years, we have enjoyed viewing this elaborate exhibit. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the awarded gingerbread creations as no two years are ever the same. This exhibit is truly a must see and is sure to put everyone in the holiday spirit.
When we finished viewing all the gingerbread masterpieces, we decided to test our mad racing skills by creating candy race cars. This opportunity is available through January 6th for families wanting to create a rad candy racing machine. Be careful you don't eat more candy than you attach to the cars!! Ella made the best and fastest race car, and beat her two brothers race after race.
Once we were done racing we went to my all time favorite exhibit Indiana Jones and the Adventures Of Archaeology. Not only do I find something new and interesting when viewing the exhibit, but I always find myself going home and breaking out my all time favorite film: Raiders of The Lost Ark. This exhibit is here for a limited time, so make sure and get in to see it before it is gone.
We finished up our time at the Discovery Science Center by visiting Santa, and all three of my kids had the opportunity to tell Santa what they wanted for Christmas. They were able to have their picture taken with Santa as a keepsake from their fun evening at the Discovery Science Center. Santa will be making an appearance on weekends lending an ear for all the kids that want to tell Santa what they want this year for Christmas.
The discovery Science Center is a fantastic place to visit year round and is even more magical during the holiday season.
