Port Discover will highlight award-winning, local, middle school science projects
on February 21 and Thursday 28 from 3:30 p.m. - 5 p.m. at Port Discover. The students
will be with their projects to explain their experiments and findings and to answer
questions from the public.
"Port Discover sees this as a wonderful opportunity to showcase great science being
done by local middle-schoolers," said Wendy Pierce, director of science education
at Port Discover. "We hope that these middle school students will inspire younger
visitors to continue to pursue science."
Port Discover is located at 613 E. Main Street. Port Discover's hours are Tuesday
through Saturday, 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. Programs can be arranged at other times for special
groups. For more information call 252-338-6117 or visit www.portdiscover.org.
