We will be celebrating the opening of the Discovery Spot all month long! The new Discovery Spot is here to provide our community’s youngest scientists with their very first steps in science.

And don’t think we forgot about our scientists older than 6! Come visit us in The Hangar Makerspace for activities geared to our more experienced discoverers!
