Join the Discovery Center as we learn what it takes to Build! a Martian habitat for our 2019 Summer of Discovery program and exhibit.

Build! explores what it would take to live on Mars by tinkering, building, and experimenting.

Have fun participating in hands-on activities, with special presentations and workshops on Saturday for the entire summer. The learning labs will be open on Saturdays and only open weekdays according to availability.
