Cosmos: Putting on my Nostracosmos cap and peering into my crystal water bowl, I see that 100 years from now people will be living well into their 100s. This means today’s pups will be in a position to share fond memories of the 2015 Centennial with San Diego History Center archivists when Balboa Park celebrates its 200-year anniversary.
Fortunately, a blockbuster Family Day isn’t the only memorable event designed specifically for kids this year in Balboa Park. In fact, since you obviously haven’t been reading my blog for the past month, I should point out several of them are already underway, with more to come.
2theXtreme—MathAlive2 — San Diego Air & Space Museum (thru Sept. 13, 2015): Budding engineers will gladly lap up the importance of multiplication tables and long division once they learn how they relate to creating video games, snowboarding, controlling an interplanetary rover, rock-climbing, and other fun interactive experiences.
The Ingenious Dr. Seuss — San Diego History Center (thru Dec. 31, 2015): The animal-loving author of dozens of children’s books, Dr. Seuss, is brought to life through his rare early works, whimsical illustrations and sculptures, and pack-friendly interactive exhibits and special celebrity readings.
Coast to Cactus — San Diego Natural History Museum (permanent exhibition): Pack leaders can let their litter run wild through seven immersive environments that reveal the wide diversity of creatures and plants inhabiting our extended backyard of San Diego County through multimedia interactives and live animal exhibits.
Circus: Science Under the Big Top — Reuben H. Fleet Science Center (May 23 – Sept. 7, 2015): Youngsters can run away and join the circus without actually running away as they learn the science behind juggling, tightrope walking, sword swallowing, animal communication, and other amazing feats.
In addition to major museum exhibitions, various special performing arts events throughout the year — courtesy of San Diego Junior Theatre, San Diego Civic Youth Ballet, and the Marie Hitchcock Puppet Theater — promise to keep young rumps glued to their seats and howling for more.
