CSC Grand Opening a Success
The Children’s Science Center reopened Saturday, April 6, to a full house and a full day
of learning and fun.
"The opening was a huge success," Julie Smoragiewicz, vice president for University
Relations at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, said. "It’s great to be
open again and giving children and people of all ages the chance to learn about
science and have fun at the same time."
Opening day visitors watched a live puppet show, listened to a presentation about the
exhibit, “Earth as Art,” and used the Center’s two newest attractions, the Buffalo
Reading Room and the indoor tree house.
The Center is open from 9 a.m. to noon every Thursday and Friday, and from 9 a.m. to
noon the first Saturday of every month. See a complete list of activities at
The Children’s Science Center is an outreach project of the South Dakota School of
Mines and Technology.
