Coca-Cola Space Science Center presents March Madness

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Stressing about March Madness brackets?

Then bring the kids to the Coca-Cola Space Science Center for a month of hands-on, take-home science activities, live science shows, and reading programs for the little ones with March MadScience!

Every Saturday in March, Astro Cam the Space Man will be on site with live science shows highlighting subjects ranging from Energy and Sound to Rockets and Robots! Also on Saturdays, kids will have an opportunity to build and take home a fun science project.

For the tiniest explorers (ages 6 and under), the center will offer special science-themed reading programs and hands-on activities every Tuesday in March from 2 to 5 p.m.

To cap it all off, the last Saturday in March will kick-off Coca-Cola Space Science Center SUPER SATURDAYS (special programs to be held during their 5-Saturday months). With standard admission, this program includes a full day of live science shows, hands-on activities, an "Egg-stronaut" egg drop competition, gallery exhibits, planetarium shows, prizes, and more!

Finally, gather the family and come back at 7 p.m. for a free showing of a classic Sci-Fi movie!
