The Perfect Place for WRF: Saint Louis Science Center

Filed in News by on July 25, 2018 • views: 1458

The Saint Louis Science Center traces its roots to the Academy of Science of St. Louis, founded in 1856 as the first scientific organization west of the Mississippi River. In 1959, the Academy created the Museum of Science and Natural History in Clayton’s Oak Knoll Park. When the Metropolitan Zoological Park & Museum District (ZMD) was formed in 1971, the Museum of Science and Natural History became a member, independent from the Academy, which continues to operate as a separate entity to this day.

The Saint Louis Science Center was named a Smithsonian Institution Affiliate, the first in the St. Louis area in 2016. This title provides access to Smithsonian artifacts, traveling exhibits, and educational collaborations locally and nationally.

The Saint Louis Science Center features more than 700 interactive exhibits in ten galleries, including GROW, Mission: Mars, Life Science Lab, Makerspace, Discovery Room, Ecology and Environment, Structures, Liftoff and Experience Energy. In addition, guests can see science in action through Amazing Science Demonstrations at CenterStage, enjoy a thrilling film experience at the OMNIMAX Theater and gaze at the stars at the James S. McDonnell Planetarium.

The National Weather Association Foundation WeatherReady Fest will take place in St. Louis at the Saint Louis Science Center, on Saturday, August 25, 2018, from 9:30 AM until 5:30 PM. Get your free tickets by clicking here.
