Twenty Years of Discovery: A Science Celebration!


by Jason Wolvington, Associate Director, Discovery Science Center

We’ve reached a milestone here at Discovery Science Center: founded as a non-profit organization in 1989, 2009 marks our 20th year offering hands-on explorations in science and technology for Fort Collins and the surrounding region! Housing more than 120 interactive exhibits, DSC offers a variety of programming, from planetarium shows and special classes to guest presenters and rotating exhibits.

Come celebrate with us! From March 17 through 21, drop by between 11:00 – 2:00 to take part in fun science experiments and demos, with different science topics each day of the week.

Tuesday, March 17 Voyage to the Moon!
Visit our special Moon Phase StarLab shows at 11 am and 1 pm, and make some lunar and stellar projects to take home.

Wednesday, March 18 It’s a Chemical Thing
Chemical reactions cause all sorts of changes! Make balloons inflate (without using your breath!), discover the amazing properties of dry ice, and see how a battery works.

Thursday, March 19 Spectacular Food Science
Explore the recipes for exciting food experiments-from ice cream and butter, to exploding Mentos soda fountains. Enjoy a slice of DSC birthday cake while you’re here!

Friday, March 20 It’s a Small World After All
Delve into the super small world of nano science! Hands-on activities provide a view into the microscopic nano world, with demonstrations showing current nanotechnology research.

Saturday, March 21 Assemble and Take Apart Day
Take-Apart Day is one of the most popular events here at DSC. This time, visitors can also put engineering minds to work by constructing towers and structures…using spaghetti noodles and marshmallows!
