RAPID CITY RESIDENT DONATES AWARD MONEY TO
CHILDREN’S SCIENCE CENTER
This past Saturday, May 6 at the Children’s Science Center, Linda Marchant, a resident of Rapid City, presented a check for $ 250 to Science Center Director Craig DeTample. The amount was an award Marchant received from U. S. West titled Champion of Children, for her volunteer work with Women, Infant, and Children ( WIC), breast feeding education, metabolic children, and Rapid City Health Coalition. Linda decided to donate her award to the Children's Science Center so students at General Beadle and Berquist Schools can enjoy field trips at the Center. DeTample will work with the named schools to schedule field trips.
Linda supports the Children's Science Center's philosophy of providing science and technology in a museum atmosphere to the children of Rapid City and encourages the donation of gifts small and large to this worthy endeavor.
The Children’s Science Center is located at 515 West Boulevard. Hours of operation are Tuesday – Friday, 9: 00 am – 5: 00 pm, and Saturday 10: 00 am – 4: 00 pm. The next special event at the Science Center will be held this Sunday, May 14 in conjunction with Mother’s Day and National Historic Preservation Week. Discover South Dakota with Treasures from Grandma’s Attic will include a demonstration of the Historic Rapid City project by student historians from Rapid Valley Elementary School. The Science Center will also have information on the renovations to the Center’s own historic structure. Admission to the Science Center will be FREE to all visitors for the special day of activities.
