While great American athletes are competing in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia, Da Vinci Science Center visitors can earn their own Olympic glory during the Presidents Day weekend.
The Center will host its Da Vinci Olympics for visitors as part of its Year of Innovation from Saturday, Feb. 15-Monday, Feb. 17, 2014. Visitors will be able to explore how the science of snow and the technology of snowboards combine to break records, compete in a robot biathlon, and experience the aerodynamics of ski jumping.
The events will be held from 11 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on Saturday and Monday and from 1-4:30 p.m. on Sunday and will be included with paid Center admission or membership entry.
The Year of Innovation is currently the Da Vinci Science Center’s highlight theme. The Year of Innovation promotes the necessary skills for all scientific and technical careers – including creativity, collaboration, process skills, and problem-solving abilities. It includes three traveling exhibitions, the opening of several new permanent exhibits, and its series of interactive visitor programs.
