The Saint Louis Science Center has teamed up with the Gateway Electric Vehicle Association to bring you the first annual electric vehicle car show! This is a great opportunity to check out what Electric Vehicles (EVs) are all about. We will have owners of all the major EVs including Teslas, Leafs, Volts, and even some home built conversion electric cars to check out. The show goes from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the James S. McDonnell Planetarium parking lot. Concession stand will be available.
The Saint Louis Science Center is excited to partner with Tau Beta Pi- a national Engineering Honors Society to provide STEM Engineering based programs for children grades 3-6. MindSET is a national initiative led by Tau Beta Pi to help K-12 students get interested in STEM careers by organizing a variety of programs that are both fun and educational.
Trauma prevention educators from Tenet Health and Saint Louis University Hospitals will be at the Saint Louis Science Center to help visitors learn how to prevent serious injuries (falls, concussions, automobile and other vehicular accidents, sports-related injuries, and many others).
Free eye screenings for visitors of all ages will be provided by Saving Sight on Saturday, August 2 (9:30am to 3pm) and Sunday, August 3 (11am to 3pm) in Room AB (Lower Level) of the Science Center.

On certain dates and times, the Science Center will offer Low Sensory Days in the DINOSAURS IN MOTION exhibition. During these times, the exhibition will have regular room lighting (not theatrical or strobe lighting) and the sounds on all videos and the dinosaurs will be off or very low. Please note, the dinosaurs in the exhibition make noise just from their movement, so the exhibition cannot be completely quiet. Those buying tickets at these times will be alerted to the exhibition conditions.
