Summer of Discovery
Summer of Discovery: Science of Sport
Space Foundation Discovery Center is gearing up for another summer of fun, inspirational and educational workshops and activities focused on the Science of Sport. We might not all be astronauts going to the Moon, but we use space science and technology every day on Earth through the lens of sports and more. Discovery Center is going to have a summer full of family-friendly activities, starting June 2021. We are a clean, safe space for you and your family to learn about our universe and science all year long.
Space Foundation Discovery Center kicks off a new Summer of Discovery: Science of Sport June 3rd, from 5:00-8:00pm. Join our staff and community partners for a block party and get a hands-on sneak peek at this summer’s exciting new workshops. Discovery Center Kickoff activities included in SFDC General Admission.
