If you haven’t taken your family to the Discovery Science Center or “Discovery Cube” before, then you are missing out on a fun learning experience for the kids as well as the kid at heart. This science center is geared toward getting kids involved in science in a very hands-on way. Creating connections as well as questions in their mind as they learn about all realms of the scientific world while at play. This creative place has a safe and inviting enviroment for families with children of a broad age range. Though previously aimed towards school-aged children, the center has been catering more to younger children as well in recent years.
The Discovery Science Center is competitively priced at $12.95 adults, $9.95 kids (3-17), kids 2 and under are free! Teachers also are prized at the center, receiving free admission with credentials, school ID badge, or paystub for current year. I suggest considering a membership during your visit. Become a member during your visit and your purchase price goes towards your membership fee. Individual membership is $60 for a year and family is $99. Go to http://www.discoverycube.org for more information on memberships, planning your visit, and current exhibits.
There are so many different exhibits that there is truly something for everyone. The creative minds at the Discovery Cube also consider that families may be returning time and time again with their membership and expect new ideas. That’s why you’ll find new exhibts almost monthly, a revamp of whole sections at times, as well as craft-type activities. You’ll actually want to go regularly in order to keep up with what’s new.
So maybe you’ve heard of this science center before, but have you actually gone? Conveniently located off the 5 freeway in Santa Ana, right next to the MainPlace Mall. Plan a family fun day or make it a daddy and me day. Either way, you’ll not only be fully engaging your children in age-appropriate fun, but feeding their minds with good science too.
