New exhibition opening this weekend

It’s been an amazing few months here at Discovery Science Center. We opened our newest permanent exhibition – Science of Hockey – on April 2nd, and hosted BubbleFest from April 4th to the 19th. Within two weeks, we had set a new record for one day attendance.

Coming up this weekend, we are ready to open the first of two summer exhibitions, Robots and Us. We just today confirmed our lineup of events on Saturday:

10 a.m. A Boeing Robot will cut the ribbon to open the exhibition to the public

10 a.m. – 2 p.m. A FIRST Robotics Competition will take place in our Dino Quest exhibit area

10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Segway Orange County will be here to offer test drives to adults and children 12 and older

It takes a lot to get large exhibitions like Robots and Us unpacked, set up, tested and ready for the thousands of young visitors that will experience it this summer. Our exhibits and operations teams are hard at work getting things ready – and that includes the careful transportation of a certain insect population that is featured inside the exhibition. We’ll let you visit to see what we’re talking about.

If you visit this summer and take photos that you’d like to share, we invite you to be a part of our Flickr Group. Let us know … what did you discover today?
