This exhibit was so awesome! Thank you science center for this opportunity during these challenging times. We miss you and can’t wait to come back inside when it opens. 🦑🐙🐠🐬🐳🦀🦈#loyalmembers #brickexhibit
We had an awesome time at BRICKLIVE Ocean!! So nice to be able to do something different that was also fun and educational.
Any update on plans to reopen the indoor area for members? I understand the health of the community is more important, but I can't find any information on your Covid plans to reopen anytime soon other than the Brick live activity.
Brought my 5 homeschoolers for our field trip today... They had a great time, but a huge shout out to your amazing staff who took the time to really make their trip (especially my 6 year old son's) awesome. I snuck this picture while he was talking to said 6 year old, but he engaged all of the kids and really gave a positive memory of the DSC to the kids.
Unfortunately we were disappointed with how things were handled today. We had a good time but everything was group oriented and staff refused to run some of the activities for a small family. We were ushered out to make way for a bigger group which felt unprofessional and disappointing for the kids. This could be much cooler if staff spent more time focusing on the individual and the experience for smaller groups. Not sure we’ll be back for this exact reason.
I am excited about Bean's meet and greet this Sunday ! Will we be able to pet him or get a picture with him ?
I see you have alcohol social club nights. I was thinking it could be good to do "foodie" nights as well-that are alcohol free.
Thanks for the fantastic Little Coders camp, my boys never wanted to leave!
I just want to thank you for an making my son Max's birthday party a huge success! He's taken numerous week long and day camps through the last few years but today, we had one of your scientists come out to put on a display for his birthday party and he and us, couldn't have been happier! Our son Max, is the child in the lower left corner of your cover pic! Your birthday program is a great thing and we would recommend you to anyone considering it! Thank you again!
Thank you to DaVinci Science Center and their educator for putting on an outstanding presentation at my son's (Max) birthday party this afternoon! It was such a different thing to have at a party and so well worth it. We couldn't have enjoyed it more and Max said it was his favorite part of the day. I can't recommend this outreach program more - Max loves science camps at the center and today the center came to us. Thank you!!!
Must have looked at these bins a dozen times! I saw early on that B104 was CRUSHING the competition. Good job, everyone!!
