Do I have to purchase admission to the center if I only want to see a show at the planetarium? I recall the after hours planetarium shows didn't require admission to both. Thanks!
Do tickets have to be purchased online or can they purchased in person?
Had a blast! #SecondSaturdays
How is tomorrow’s Touch a Truck event priced for non-members?
I visited last week and loved it. Keeping people focused on conserving energy is an important side effect of scientific pursuits involving space and travel; that is regardless of our being so far from the large bodies of water on Earth's surface. Humbling to notice the outer atmosphere is closer than those waters. If we travel as far South from the Equator as the Ohio River is to the North, how much higher is the magnitude of temperature variation between the hottest and coolest days of the year? Are the winds stronger in the Southern Hemisphere?
Which pumpkin one the contest today??
A big thanks to Adventure Science Center for supporting Step Up & Serve Fun Run / Fall Festival / Silent Auction via @DonationMatch!!🙂🙂🙂
