COUNTDOWN TO THE GRAND OPENING OF THE
CHILDREN’S SCIENCE CENTER!
The wait is almost over. Rapid City’s new Children’s Science Center will be hosting its grand opening November 15, 1999. With the opening of the new hands- on museum just a short jump away, a variety of fun and exciting activities are planned over the next month and a half to entice and intrigue the children of Rapid City.
With the color of the leaves changing and the weather turning cool, it can only mean one thing… Halloween is fast approaching. You don’t want to miss Scales and Tails at the Children’s Science Center. Children are invited to come and design their own Halloween costumes! At a cost of $ 10 per child you can’t beat this fun event. Scales and Tails will be held Thursday, October 21 from 2: 30 – 5: 30 pm, and Saturday, October 23 from 10: 00 am – 12: 00 noon.
Don’t think we forgot about the ghostly night itself. Come by the Children’s Science Center on Halloween for Newt’s Night Out. Newt wants to give you Trick- or Treats! He will be standing in front of the Science Center with goodies looking for kids to hand them out to.
With the grand opening a short time away, the Children’s Science Center will be hosting Teacher Day on November 11. Teacher Day will be held from 9: 00 am – 5: 00 pm on Thursday, November 11. Area teachers are invited to come to the Children’s Science Center at any time during the day at no charge. This will give the staff at the Science Center an opportunity to introduce the museum to area teachers and invite them to bring their classrooms back for field trips. Teachers will be able to tour the museum, talk with the staff, and provide feedback on program topics for field trips.
The staff at the Science Center is seeking volunteers who would like to donate their time to help out at the gift shop, give tours, and welcome visitors to the Science Center. If you are interested in volunteering, call the Science Center at ( 605) 394- 6996.
The Children’s Science Center is an educational partnership between the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology ( SDSM& T), Rapid City, and area communities. The Science Center is located at 515 West Boulevard. For additional information about activities planned call ( 605) 394- 6996.
