What's New

Monday, March 9, 9:00 - 10:00 a.m.

Member Mondays are that special time when you get to come into the Science Center before it's open to the public. This month we're making just a tad more special with some special guests: Sugarcrash Kids!

Joshua Pearson and Jeremiah John Dunlap started the Sugarcrash Kids "to make the world a wee bit brighter," pleasing both young and adult ears with charming songs like "The Potty Song" and "I Got Hiccups." They will bring an acoustic set of their whimsical tunes to Member Monday.

For more information on Member Monday, call 407.514.2158. To learn more about the Sugarcrash Kids, visit here.

Please note: Nemours Brightstart! will not be conducting reading readiness screenings at this Member Monday, but will return in April.

Orlando Science Center's Curtis Kinetic Science Competition is a science competition geared toward fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth graders which allows students to use their creativity and science knowledge to win money for their science class or club.

The competition fosters teamwork and hands-on learning while motivating students to stretch the capacity of their imaginations by transforming ordinary and found objects into a kinetic sculpture. The Curtis Kinetic Science Competition focuses on Florida Sunshine State Standards for Science including energy, force and motion, and the nature of science.

Projects resemble those made famous by American cartoonist and inventor Rube Goldberg. Machines are assembled using household, store-bought and disposed-of items and are designed to perform a simple task in complex fashion. By utilizing kinetic energy, a single action sets events in motion that result in a domino effect.
