Let’s go sledding!
Or, as close to it as we can for being in Los Angeles.
Discovery Cube is hosting their second annual Winter Wonderfest, beginning December 17, 2016 through January 8, 2017, at both their Orange County and Los Angeles locations. This snowstorm of thrills and excitement will offer kids the opportunity to learn the science behind sledding down ice ramps, weather and how snow is formed through hands-on activities. The holiday exhibit will include sliding down a 75-foot long ramp on inner tubes, a snow play area and real snow sledding. Kids will be provided with tools to play with the snow and build snow castles, snowmen, snow angels and all kinds of other frosty creations. Other “snow meets science” learning stations include Animal Adaptations to the Cold, Three States of Water and Cloud in a Bottle. Winter Wonderfest creates an entertaining way to approach education through a day of family bonding during the holiday season.
“Discovery Cube inspires and educates young minds through engaging science-based programs and exhibits to create a meaningful impact on the communities they serve. Their mission is brought to life through the cornerstones of their four core initiatives, including: STEM Proficiency, Early Learning, Healthy Living and Environmental Stewardship. This event represents their evolving commitment to expand STEM proficiency by keeping up with the trends, events and news that are capturing kids’ attention – and creating an entertaining way to approach education through a day of family bonding during the holiday season.”
And don’t forget about the Gingerbread!
The Science of Gingerbread is on November 25, 2016 – JANUARY 1, 2017
The Cube’s holiday festival is filled with educational, hands-on activities designed to bring families together this holiday season. Local companies, schools, families and organizations are invited to build their own gingerbread house creations and enter into a competition. The entire visual display must be made of edible materials. Gingerbread creation entries will be displayed throughout Discovery Cube. Discovery Cube seeks to prove that there is more than just mixing and pouring in the kitchen, it’s science at work.
