Save a snowball now for discounted admission on June 20 Annual Carnegie Science Center tradition is back

Snowball Day 2

With winter weather in the forecast, it’s time to get ready for Carnegie Science Center’s annual Snowball Day celebration. All visitors who make a snowball this winter, save it in their freezer, and bring it to the Science Center on Sun., June 20 will pay $5 for general admission tickets for the day.

In addition to the discounted admission ticket, visitors will launch their snowball with a cannon at a Snowball Launch Site, learn about snowy science in the demonstration theaters, and safely solar observe on the Brain Maze. All activities are included with general admission.

Snowball Day began at the Science Center in 2006. In past years, hundreds of snowballs have survived in winter and spring in freezers throughout the region and made their way to the Science Center – in coolers, freezer bags, frosty coffee cans, and plastic storage containers.

Please see the safety guidelines in place to learn what is being done to ensure safe and fun experiences for all visitors.

Snowball Day is sponsored by WISH 99.7.
