Upcoming Events

Victoria the T. rex

Animals, Children, Education, For the Family, History/Science
Victoria, the largest Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton touring the world, is making her global debut at Arizona Science Center with a special exhibition that opens to the public on November 17. This world premiere exhibition will transport guests to a time when dinosaurs roamed the earth, bringing to life one of the most important discoveries in the history of paleontology and giving museum visitors the rare opportunity to visit the Cretaceous period where Victoria’s story will unfold in her natural habitat.

Victoria the T. rex is the second most complete T. rex skeleton on record. Initially unearthed in 2013, Victoria has undergone years of meticulous research and restoration in order to earn this claim. Victoria’s completeness and unique pathologies have provided paleontologists with a wealth of insights that will be studied for years to come.
The exhibit explores every facet of Victoria’s life and death, including the unusual battle scars that may have led to her death, and her role as a mother. With Victoria’s striking, pristinely maintained skeleton as a focal feature, the exhibition uses stunning animations and immersive digital environments and merges them with the latest paleontological findings to create an educational, emotional experience unlike any other.

Preschool Saturday Science: Leap Into Science: Wind

Children, Education
Air is everywhere—but how do we know it exists if we can’t see it? Air is most noticeable when we feel it in the form of wind. Wind can be a light breeze that blows our hair on a spring day, or a strong gust that knocks down trees during a powerful storm. We can also see air when it fills up space inside a bubble or a balloon. The Leap into Science wind workshop invites children and families to experiment with air and explore the ways that an invisible substance can produce visible effects.
Get school-ready with science! Introduce your preschooler to the fascinating world of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). They will learn scientific vocabulary by reading a unique story, experiment with developmentally appropriate science through hands-on investigations, and develop important skills to prepare for success in school and in life.
