From the Sea to the Stars: OCC's Community Science Night - Newport Mesa Moms

It may be October, but not all skeletons are for haunting.  On Friday, October 19, 2018, Orange Coast College is holding their Annual Community Science Night from 5:30pm to 9:30pm.  My husband and I took the kids last year, not knowing if the stuff would be over their heads, but it wasn’t.  OCC put together a great kid-friendly event with lots of “hand-on/interactive” opportunities to learn and experience including:

  • Robots on Parade
  • Stargazing with High Powered Telescopes
  • Crawly Creatures from the Sea
  • Bones & Skeletons
  • Airplanes and Helicopters
  • Volcanic Rocks
  • Dinosaur Skeletons

Our favorites from last year included a ride in the dentist chair, looking at x-rays, playing with magnets, using microscopes, observing animals from the sea, and watching the big “volcanic” explosion.  And yes, I did jump!  We weren’t able to see the stars due to some non-cooperating weather, but look forward to getting another chance!

This event is completely FREE (including the snacks and refreshments).
