The Portland Science Center has announced its second exhibit will be introduced late next month. The new exhibit will be two-pronged: The first is: “Space: A Journey to Our Future.” The second is a “Robot Zoo.” The Portland Science Center is located at 68 Commercial Street, the Maine Wharf, on the Portland waterfront.
The current exhibit, Body Worlds, ends on January 3, 2016. The exhibit which began over Labor Day 2015 has been very successful said Matt Stone, Director of Sales, for the Science Center. Forty-five thousand people have visited the Center this fall with 9,000 of those students.
Robot Zoo is intended to be a learning experience for children. The exhibit will teach children how animals work – including their internal mechanisms. The space exhibit will feature moon and mars rocks that the public can touch. One moon rock that the public can not touch was brought back to earth by one of the US astronauts.
The Portland Science Center is located in the same building as Casco Bay Arts which recently had its grand opening and SCALES a new restaurant owned by Dana Street and Sam Haywood. It’s expected to open sometime early next year.
The Center is open seven days a week. For details on group rates, please contact Matt at: firstname.lastname@example.org Tickets may be purchased at the Center or visit PortlandScienceCenter.com
