BUFFALO BONANZA HEADED FOR THE CHILDREN’S SCIENCE CENTER!
Rapid City’s up and coming Children’s Science Center is hosting a Buffalo Bonanza on Saturday, July 10 from 10: 00 am – 2: 00 pm. The Buffalo Bonanza is an event to celebrate “ tatanka”, known otherwise as the bison. This event will please all ages with story- telling, games, exhibits, and speakers honoring one of the Great Plains’ most venerated animals.
Lakota George, a story- teller and flute maker, will give two presentations during the afternoon displaying games, and self- made flutes. Donovan Sprague, an instructor of Lakota Arts will be giving a demonstration of bead and quill work.
Activities throughout the event will include painting using buffalo bones, face painting, making beaded jewelry, and other various games utilizing parts of the buffalo. Visitors will also be able to enjoy a delicious lunch of buffalo burgers, or buffalo kabobs at a minimal price.
The Children’s Science Center is Rapid City’s newest interactive museum which will focus on learning by doing and making learning fun. The Center will provide area children with hands- on activities in science and technology. Located at 515 West Boulevard, the Children’s Science Center is scheduled to open November 15, 1999.
