Children in exhibit space area


Come visit the newest addition to the Science Theater facility; Exhibit SPACE.  In an effort to bring science (of all disciplines) into the lives of our patrons we added Exhibit SPACE.  Throughout the year the Exhibit SPACE will rotate displays in an attempt to augment our current programs, to introduce scientific concepts, theories and innovations.  Currently, we are displaying rocks, minerals and fossils provided to us by Peter W. Knightes Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, London, Professor of Geology and Geography, Central Texas College.  See pieces of our geologic history, Mammoth bones, and the minerals that help us in everyday life.

Also located in the Exhibit SPACE is View Space provided to the Mayborn Science Theater by the Space Telescope Science Institute. View Space directly feeds via the Internet to feature numerous programs such as:
