Mad Science Saturday!

Do you have or know children that love science? Are you a homeschool teacher that has trouble teaching some of the more challenging concepts? Well then don't miss our Family Science Night on Saturday, October 14th.

Family Science Night will go from 4 to 6 p.m. The audience will be amazed when the Mad Scientist is able to bring out everyone's inner engineer. Discover the engineering challenges common to everything we build. See an amazing Mad Science show with the entire family. You will be able to watch fascinating interactive science demonstrations that will not only entertain kids but also teach them some science as well. Then the whole family will be able to do their very own hands-on science projects at 3 different science stations. And before the night is over each child will receive 3 different take-home science activity sheets so the learning doesn't have to stop when you leave! It is a perfect opportunity for the family to get out and have a fun night while learning all about science through hands-on, interactive demonstrations.

Tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased on our website. Seating is limited, so it's recommended that you get your tickets in advance. But for a limited time get $2 off each ticket with the special coupon code 2dollars-off. For any questions feel free to give us a call at 903-510-2312.
We hope to see you soon.

New Exhibit Coming Soon!

The Center for Earth and Space Science Education will be temporarily closed to switch out our exhibit.
The TJC Science Center will be closed the week of August 28th thru Friday, September 8th in order to change out our exhibit and prepare for the new academic year.

Roll Drop Bounce, the new exhibit will officially open on Saturday, September 9th. This totally kinetic and hands-on experience appeals to the wheel-spinning, ball tossing, and continuously bouncing kids of all ages.
 
The physics of motion is the topic of the exhibit, but the main theme is having fun doing experiments with balls and wheels. While interacting with model cars, colliding balls and catapults, visitors develop an understanding of the science of motion. Admission is included in the price of a show ticket or $3 without a show ticket.

Also don't miss our first Star Party of the semester on Saturday, September 9th. We will be having three live shows in the planetarium detailing what is currently visible in our sky at 8:00 pm, 8:30 pm, and 9:00 pm. Telescopes will be set up as well. For more information or if you have questions feel free to give us a call at 903-510-2312 or check out our website!
See you for the new exhibit.

The Shark Brothers Coming to the TJC Science Center

The Shark Brothers are coming to the TJC Science Center!
We are pleased to announce that the Shark Brothers are coming to the TJC Science Center on Friday, June 23rd and Saturday, June 24th. Their interactive presentation called "Explore Wild Ideas" will be presented at 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm on Friday and Saturday. 

Sean and Brooks Paxton's fascination with sharks took hold during childhood, after seeing the movie "Jaws" in 1975. Since the early 2000s, as the Shark Brothers, they have become known as innovators and shark experts, taking an active role in shark management and conservation efforts through their experience as explorers, divers, anglers, performers and producers. They are now widely recognized as influential personalities in the world of educational entertainment with regard to a number of topics including sharks. 

They maintain a heavy schedule driven by a host of projects highlighting a number of outdoor adventure, exploration and wildlife topics resulting in work seen internationally on the Discovery Channel, Shark Week, PBS, National Geographic, the Weather Channel, FOX and NBC. "Their new interactive multimedia presentation will engage the audience and teach them all about their line of work, plus they will have some exclusive footage to show," said Brian Kremer, TJC science center coordinator. "It will be a very exciting, informative show."
We hope to see you soon.
