Discovery Center's summer themes focus on heroes of space travel
Four space-oriented themes, each with related activities, are being offered through Aug. 6 at the nonprofit foundation's Discovery Center, 4425 Arrowswest Drive (off Garden of the Gods Road).
Admission is $10 for adults, with discounts for students, seniors and military. The center is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Additional activities are planned most Saturdays.
Here are the themes and their time frames:
- Visionaries, June 11-24.
- Scientists, June 25-July 15.
- Engineers, July 16-29.
- Astronauts, July 30-Aug. 6.
On a regular basis, the center offers ongoing activities and exhibits, including the Northrop Grumman Science Center, El Pomar Space Gallery and Lockheed Martin Space Systems Education Center.
A traveling exhibit, titled "Super Kids Save the World," has also been set up at the Discovery Center and will remain through Sept. 10. Based on a British book, "George Saves the World by Lunchtime," the elements of the interactive exhibt "demonstrate that by taking simple steps, families can become eco-friendly superheroes in their own communities," a press release states.
