Discovery Center offers educational spring break activities


For many students around the Rockford area, this week means spring break, but the Discovery Center is making sure that doesn't mean they're taking a break from learning.

The museum is offering a Spring Into Science event throughout the week from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. every day through March 28. In addition to the 200 hands-on activities the museum typically features, there will also be live science demonstrations, planetarium shows, and arts and crafts activities.

The cost of the activities is free with admission, which is $8 for adults and kids. Members and children under age one are free.
