Allentown Middle Schoolers to Visit DSC Free with Wells Fargo Support

Free Sundays
Students from all four Allentown School District middle schools will enjoy free Da Vinci Science Center visits with free transportation this summer through support from Wells Fargo.

Students from the four Allentown middle schools can visit free on their school’s designated Sunday with an accompanying adult and up to three additional family members. Free bus rides between these school locations to the Da Vinci Science Center also will be provided. Busing is provided on a first-come-first-served basis with limited seating. Busing details will be announced on the web at davincisciencecenter.org/freesundays.

Students from Harrison-Morton Middle School and Trexler Middle School will be able to visit for free on Sunday, May 31, 2015. Students from Raub Middle School and South Mountain Middle School will be able to visit for free on Sunday, June 7, 2015. The Da Vinci Science Center is open from 12-5 p.m. on Sundays.

The free Da Vinci Science Center admission will include the Da Vinci Science Center’s summer feature exhibition National Geographic Presents: Earth Explorers.

“One of the Da Vinci Science Center’s most important core values is to serve youth and families from all socioeconomic backgrounds,” said Lin Erickson, the Center’s Executive Director and CEO. “This support from Wells Fargo offers an inspiring, enriching, and memorable experience to an important group of young people and furthers our impact on urban neighborhoods, where the need is the greatest.”

The National Geographic Explorers exhibit opens at the Da Vinci Science Center on Saturday, May 30, 2015. Its appearance at the Center is sponsored in part by ATAS International, Inc., the Dexter F. and Dorothy H. Baker Foundation, the County of Lehigh, and Frank and Yvonne Schweighardt. National Geographic Earth Explorers takes visitors on journeys to some of the world’s wildest places and puts them inside some of the globe’s wildest adventures – such as soaring in a hot air balloon over the African savannas, scaling the Himalayas in Asia, exploring the Amazon rain forest, and coming face-to-face with a great white shark under an ocean’s surface.

National Geographic Earth Explorers features five areas that highlight the planet’s most spectacular eco-zones. Each area hosts interactive experiences for kids and the kinds of stunning visuals for which National Geographic is famous.
