After bringing the mystery fossil into the Science Center, his find was confirmed to be the vertebrae of Bison antiquas, an ancestor of the modern day bison that lived during the late Pleistocene epoch over 230,000 years ago.
The Science Center’s new, must-see attraction (located above CenterStage) will absolutely shock you! Or it would, if we didn’t keep it enclosed in a cage specially designed to protect you (and your phone!) from its amazing power… No, it’s not an exotic animal, it’s…a Tesla Coil!
I know for the past several years, many of us have been unable to go on vacations as we’ve tightened our belts. In comes the increasingly popular staycation – taking full advantage of all that your city or one nearby has to offer. Here in St. Louis, we are lucky to have so many wonderful places to go, and one of the best, in my humble (and biased) opinion, is the Saint Louis Science Center.
2012 was a big year for us at the Science Center! We made a lot of big changes, and if you visited in 2012 you definitely noticed them. If you didn’t visit, well you missed out on the rollout of some pretty cool things. In fact, we introduced over 10,000 square feet of new or revamped exhibit experiences in 2012 alone. But, do not fret! You can check out what you missed and we’ll have even more fun things for you...
