Saturday Science at Discovery is a regular series that features interactive exploration stations centered around a particular topic. Families and learners of all ages are invited to explore hands-on science fun during this free drop-in event, which generally is held from 10 a.m. until noon on the second Saturday of each month, either virtually or in the Town Center of the Discovery Building.
