Challenger Center Hosts a Family Science Night.

While we seem to have been posting a bunch of space-related stories lately, this one hits a lot closer to home for us – quite literally. OWC has been a big sponsor of the Challenger Learning Center here in Woodstock, IL, over the years and we’ll occasionally give a shout-out here when they’re doing something neat.



WOODSTOCK, IL – Join the Challenger Learning Center crew in welcoming Museum of Science & Industry (MSI) for the fourth annual MSI night at the Challenger Center. Once the again the staff from the museum will travel to Woodstock with their hands-on activities. Past highlights included flames shot to the ceiling, explosions, dissected frogs, the making of foam and we even blew up pickles with electricity!! Who knows what the museum staff has in mind for this years event.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to get a piece of downtown Chicago right here in McHenry County. It is sure to be another memorable night for adults and children alike. Bring your children and grandchildren! The date is April 15, 2011 from 5:30 pm until 8:00 pm at the center located at 222 Church Street in Woodstock. Cost is $5.00 for children 15 and under and $10.00 for adults. Reservations are recommended so call 815-338-7722 to save your spot. Raffle prizes include a scholarship to a Challenger Cosmic Camp and other fun items.

In related news, OWC will be celebrating the second-to-last shuttle launch with our friends from The Last Shuttle Project at a private event hosted by the Challenger Center on April 19th. Look here for a recap, photos, video and other tidbits.
