Play and Learn at Discovery Science Place

March 21, 2017 11:01 am

Education, responsibility, integrity, and change. These are the four tenants that are integral to the mission of Discovery Science Place. Through interactive, engaging exhibits, the local museum seeks to create a young generation that's excited about going out into the world and making it a better place.

It all begins with a visit to the children's museum, which features hands-on exhibits like the Dino Dig. Kids can actually get their hands dirty and unearth fossils here. If they're more interested in the science of movement, youngsters can check out the colorful Buford Kinetics Gallery, or for a foray into news and media, they can mimic a broadcast at the CBS 19 Kids TV Station. Kids can even learn about the importance of food and nutrition at Brookshire's Grocery Store. There are many more exhibits to explore, so plan a visit to Discovery Science Place to see them all.
