The popular exhibit, “Curious George: Let’s Get Curious!“, returns to the Orlando Science Center beginning May 17, and will be on display throughout the summer.
Based on the familiar characters in H.A. and Margret Rey’s classic stories published by Houghton Mifflin, the exhibit inspires young children’s natural curiosity as they explore early science, math and engineering through hands-on interactive play.
This immersive environment has several areas such as an Apartment Building, a Sidewalk Produce Stand, and a Construction site that encourages children to push, pull, climb, and think.
The Orlando Science Center is fun for kids of all ages, so you’ll definitely want to visit this Saturday, April 23, 2011, when they host their Earth Day event.
Little ones will delight in eco-activities in the KidsTown preschool area while adults can enjoy behind-the-scenes Green Building tours including the facility’s new 144 panel solar array and cutting edge new HVAC system.
On level four, guests can indulge in delicious s’mores that they create using solar ovens or check out water conservation experiments in Dr. Dare’s Lab. Special guest artist Dale Wayne will work with visitors of all ages to create artwork out of recycled plastic containers.
And if the kids get sick of all the nature exhibits, the Curious George exhibit is also running at the OSC.
Teaming with Walmart, the Orlando Science Center is offering a special discounted admission for the day – only $5 for everyone. Regular admission is $17 for adults and $12 for kids, so that’s quite a savings.
