Explore the new GROW Exhibit at the Saint Louis Science Center during its Grand Opening, where your kids can make treats for the chickens, ride on mini tractors, meet Dorothy and the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz, enjoy live music, giveaways and lots more.
The Science Center's newest permanent exhibit has lifted the farm from the fields so that local families can learn about how food is grown and where their food comes from. There are many hands-on and interactive activities in the one-acre display area, and many that are designed just for kids, such as a flock of live chickens, a simulated life-size cow that kids can milk and opportunities to learn how to plant, grow and harvest food in your own back yards.
Grand Opening day activities include:
9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. See our feature story for more about GROW
Admission to the Science Center and the GROW Exhibit are free. For more information, visit slsc.org/grow
