Mad Science Saturday and Family Science Night

Don't miss our Mad Science Saturday followed by our Family Science Night on Saturday, Oct. 8.
 
At 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., our "Mad Scientists" will perform two interactive, energetic science shows. Kids will have a blast while learning some cool science facts!
 
Family Science Night will go from 4 to 6 p.m. and includes demonstrations, bubbling potions, chemical reactions, and more.
 
Families can create their very own hands-on science projects at three different stations. Each child will take home three different science activity sheets, so the learning can continue even after they're home.
 
Tickets are $5 per child and $7 for adults and can be purchased at the front counter at the Science Center or here. Seating is limited, so it's recommended that you get your tickets in advance.
Hope to see you soon!

Sincerely,

Educator Appreciation Day

On Saturday, September 17th we will be having an educator appreciation day to thank all the teachers and educators for their hard work. Simply bring your valid school ID and you will gain free admission for yourself and a guest. The free admission is for any one of our planetarium shows that day as well as admission to our new interactive exhibit "Oceans: Acid versus Life".  

Our new show "Wild Ocean" will be playing at 3:00 pm. Plunge into an underwater feeding frenzy, an epic struggle for survival where whales, sharks, dolphins, seals, gannets and billions of fish collide with mankind during one of nature's greatest migration spectacles. Filmed off the Wild Coast of South Africa and set to the rhythm of the local people, Wild Ocean reveals the economic and cultural impact of the ocean while celebrating the communal efforts to protect our invaluable marine resources. 

We will be open from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm. If you have any questions feel free to give us a call at 903-510-2312.
Hope to see you on the 17th.

New Exhibit Heading to the Science Center!

It has been an exciting year at the Science Center as we encouraged kids to scream as loud as they can in the Scream Chamber, learned how sound waves work in Seeing Sound, and played a piano with their bodies under the Invisible Orchestra. But as the school year starts and everyone begins to focus on school again, we will take this time to switch out "Sonic Sensations" with our brand new exhibit "Oceans: Acid vs. Life." In order to do this we will be closing down for two weeks between August 22nd and September 5th. This will give us time to make sure everything is ready for this next school year!

Our new exhibit "Oceans: Acid vs. Life" will focus on marine life and the coral reef systems around the world. Coral reefs around the world are under assault and a team of professional and citizen scientists recently went diving in Belize to understand what's happening and to document the danger. The Belize Reef Acidification Expedition brought back images and data that form the basis for this new exhibit, supported by videos, animation, and interactive stations. Visitors learn about acidification at six live action and computer animated video stations.  Energetic kids can learn what a coral reef is and crawl through a life-size replica.  Visitors gain perspective on the diversity of reefs in displays of shells. Explore coral, sponges, and other marine life with a microscope.

Don't miss out on our brand new exhibit "Oceans: Acid vs. Life" that will be opening September 9th! For any questions about the exhibit feel free to call us at 903-510-2312.

See you soon!

Official Newsletter - Summer 2016

Volume 16, Issue 2
Summer 2016
There are so many opportunities to have fun with your family this summer at the Center for Earth & Space Science Education at TJC! The power of America's national parks are undeniable and we have brought that experience to Tyler with National Parks Adventure, the newest show playing in the 40 foot dome theater. Later in the month on Saturday, June 25th, join Marianne Dyson, one of the first ten women to serve in NASA's Mission Control and learn all about new and interesting ideas to make space science and astronomy fun. In July, we are bringing back Casey Carle and BubbleMania: Science, Art, and Comedy by popular demand! Lastly, please check our schedule for details on all of the dome shows and Rock and Roll Laser shows playing this summer.

Hope to see you soon!

National Parks Adventure and the Return of BubbleMania!
 
Don't miss your chance to see the new full dome show "National Parks Adventure." The power of America's national parks is undeniable. Millions have packed up the family to hike through impossibly lush forests, to gaze upon towering cliffs and deep-plunging canyons, to witness the breathtaking arc of natural history, and, most of all, to share moments of wonder amid the protected treasures of this land. 

 
A MacGillivray Freeman film produced in association with Brand USA and narrated by Academy Award® winner Robert Redford, National Parks Adventure is acclaimed filmmaker Greg MacGillivray's most ambitious giant-screen film to date-a film that offers not only a sweeping overview of the national parks' history, but is equal parts adrenaline-pumping odyssey and soulful reflection on what the wilderness means to us all. Immersive cinematography takes viewers soaring over red rock canyons, up craggy mountain peaks and into other-worldly realms found within America's most legendary outdoor playgrounds. Join world-class mountaineer Conrad Anker, adventure photographer Max Lowe and artist Rachel Pohl as they hike, climb and explore their way across America's majestic parks - including Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, Yosemite, and Arches - in an action-packed celebration that will inspire the adventurer in us all, and highlight how important it is that we protect these treasured landscapes.
 
National Parks Adventure will play Tuesday- Saturday at 2:00 pm. Tickets are only $5.00 for children, seniors, and students and $7.00 for adults. Ticket can be purchased at the front counter or here.

Tickets are only $5 for children and seniors and $7 for adults. Bubblemania mixes art, comedy, science, and entertainment in a way that captures the imagination of all ages. The show features giant floating spheres, soap-film "serpents," bouncing bubbles, hands-only bubbling, balanced columns of bubble foam, cube bubbles, the Amazing Popcorn Machine, the mesmerizing Crystal Ball, and even a spinning Bubble Spacecraft. Tickets sold out fast last year so don't delay!

Are you looking for new and interesting ideas to make space science and astronomy fun? Don't miss the opportunity to attend free workshops on Saturday June 25th presented by Marianne Dyson, former NASA flight controller and Golden Kite and American Institute of Physics Writing Award winner.
 
Marianne will demonstrate science concepts using inexpensive supplies and made-at-home models. Learn what it feels like to go into space, what freefall is, why gravity doesn't pull the International Space Station to the ground, how to weigh a weightless rat, how to compare the size/mass of the Earth/Moon/Mars, how far you can jump on the Moon, how far away the Moon is, why modules are round in space, how to pick things up in space, where the Apollo missions landed on the Moon, and much more!
 
The free workshops will be held at the Center for Earth & Space Science Center at TJC on Saturday, June 25th at 9:00 am and at 1pm and will last approximately 90 minutes.  Please RSVP by Wednesday, June 22nd if you are interested in attending by either calling 903-510-2312 or emailing us at sciencecenter@tjc.edu
