On September 20 the Orlando Science Center premiered the Bats: Myths and Mysteries traveling exhibit. Members got a first glance of the creatures from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in their very own exclusive preview. They had an up-close look at 25 live bats while learning fun facts about these crepuscular creatures.
Guests also got the chance to make their own paper bats to take home and put on display. The Organization for Bats Conservation were on-site sharing their knowledge on how to enjoy our bat friends in the wild. If you didn't get a chance to visit this interactive exhibit yet, come check it out check before it flies away.
Mark DeMaio, local music enthusiast, led our youngest members in a KidsTown jam session at September's Member Monday. Children danced while playing drums, tambourines, shakers and other instruments. The event also included a musical parade around the exhibit hall and a coloring activity.
We invite you to join us at our next Member Monday on Monday, October 13 from 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. Spend one hour in our newest exhibition, Bats: Myths and Mysteries, and participate in a special craft and activity. Kick off the autumn season by getting an up-close and-personal look at the real, live bats who will be temporarily inhabiting the Science Center.
Also, Nemours Brightstart! will offer FREE reading readiness screenings for three, four and five-year-olds during Member Monday. Screenings typically last five to 10 minutes and are followed by a discussion about your child's results.

Upbeat tunes filled the Digital Adventure Theater: A National Geographic Experience last Saturday when Mr. Richard came back to rock the house. A fan favorite among members, Mr. Richard had no problem getting our youngest members on their feet dancing to his rock n’ roll tunes. His album hits "Airplane" and "Cheese" got the kids singing and interacting with one another – definite crowd pleasers!
