Name your own price at the Science Center with a snowball

 

June 15, 2010



Winter has come and gone, and summer has arrived and Carnegie Science Center is kicking off the season with Snowball Day on Mon., June 21 — the first day of summer.

To celebrate the Summer Solstice, visitors who bring in a preserved snowball from this past winter will be able to choose what they pay for general admission.

In addition to naming their own price, every person who brings a snowball to the Science Center on June 21 will be able to launch his or her snowball into the Ohio River from aboard the USS Requin submarine, weather permitting.

Hundreds of snowballs that survived the winter and spring in freezers throughout the region and beyond will be making their way to the Science Center—in coolers, freezer bags, frosty coffee cans, and plastic storage containers, among others.

The full day's schedule is available online. Normal parking rates apply, and Omnimax movies and laser show prices will not be included in the special "name your price" offer.
