In less than one month something very exciting is going to occur. It will be remarkable, amazing, fantastic, super, fun, entertaining, and especially it will be memorable. There will be singing and dancing in this celebration! There will be very special and unique animals coming to visit! Games, art, stories, a real fire truck, bugs, paper airplanes, and more will all be a part of this particular birthday party. This is a celebration of something which came to life after many many years of development. We are celebrating a place that was created to inspire children to be the innovators and creators of tomorrow. The Robert & Mary Galvin Physics Forest has been officially open to all for one year on July 12, 2013. Throughout Kidspace Children’s Museum’s newest exhibit area there are 13 interactive exhibits to teach, explore and ignite one’s love of science.
Even if you have had the chance to visit Kidspace in the last year to explore the Galvin Physics Forest, we invite you back to join us in our celebration! Bring some friends along with you so you can share the experience of launching a bottle rocket, constructing a roller coaster, winning a game of tug-of-war, or creating wind power by transforming your own physical energy. And if you still haven’t yet explored the Galvin Physics Forest well this is an exciting first time to visit! We will be celebrating its very first birthday on Friday, July 12 – Sunday, July 14. Please visit www.kidspacemuseum.org for more details about the Galvin Physics Forest Birthday Celebration. We look forward to seeing you!
