Mission to Mars takes place on October 11, 2014, right here at the Wings of Eagles Discovery Center. The event kicks off at 10:00 am with lots of activities for the kids to enjoy. Your kids will love:
- Meeting LIVE Martians!
- Embarking on a museum scavenger hunt
- Seeing the AMAZING mars exhibits
- Traveling to Mars in a flight simulator
We’ll also be hosting a costume contest and we’ll have face painting. You’ll even get to see a demonstration of the new Earn Your Mars Driver’s License program.
The fun will go until 2:00 pm, which gives you plenty of time to see and do everything. Make sure you grab lunch at Sweet-N-Saucy and spend some time in the gift shop for some souvenirs to remember this incredible event.
Mission to Mars Evening Gala
Once the fun of the afternoon is over, make sure you come back at 6:00 pm to take part in our Mission to Mars Evening Gala. This adults-only event features beer and wine tasting from some of the best local breweries and businesses. Joe Cavallaro and his Dixieland Jazz Band will be on hand to provide the music, and Shoshanna Cole, a Mars Research Scientist at Cornell University will offer a presentation on Mars that you will not want to miss. Of course, Sweet-N-Saucy will be delighting your taste buds with a meal that you won’t want to miss.
