  • Free whiskey tastings with Distillery 291
  • Our famous Dr. Ron's chemistry show
  • Hands-on fun science exhibits

  • Costume contest - Rules HERE

Tickets $50 pre-registered

  As we work to bring a state-of-the-art Science Center and science programming year round to our city, we are beginning architectural and exhibit design,  identifying the size, scope and location, and assessing the economic viability of this vision.  To continue this important planning phase, we need your support.

Feel free to stop by our office at 102 S. Tejon St. Suite 104 to see our progress
