KID’S KASTLE SUPPORTS CHILDREN’S SCIENCE CENTER
Kid’s Kastle has generously sponsored the Children’s Science Center’s membership to the Rapid City Chamber of Commerce. Kid’s Kastle is an officially licensed child care center located at 1620 Concourse Court in the Rushmore Business Park.
The Children’s Science Center is a new addition to the community of Rapid City. It offers children a hands- on, interactive science museum that focuses on learning by doing and making learning fun. Located at 515 West Boulevard, the Science Center is located in the heart of Rapid City, easily accessible from downtown, and Interstate- 90.
Thanks to a partnership between the City of Rapid City and SDSM& T, the Children’s Science Center has opened full time as of April 1, 2000. Students, teachers, day care centers and other groups are now able to utilize the Center throughout the school year. The exhibits promote learning in earth science, physical science, math, technology literacy, space science, biology and other fields. The Children’s Science Center also serves as a resource for area teachers, and as an educational and community outreach project to help foster children’s interest at an early age in science and technology careers. Another goal is to increase the preparedness of students for university- level study in engineering and sciences.
Daily programming is available at 10: 00 am Tuesday through Friday, and at 10: 30 am on Saturdays. Animal Antics is led by Kathy Parent of Animal Friends who leads visitors through the Center stopping to learn about the many different live animals living within its walls.
The Children’s Science Center is open Tuesday – Friday 9: 00 am – 4: 00 pm, and Saturdays 10: 00 am – 5: 00 pm. Admission is $ 3/ person or $ 2/ person when group reservations are scheduled ahead of time. For more information about the Science Center, or to learn about upcoming events, call 605.394.6996.
