Snow Week

December 26, 2017 – January 1, 2018 

COME FOR THE SNOW AND STAY FOR THE SCIENCE! 

Snow Week made possible by Subaru

We're going EXTREME this year and blanketing Heritage & Science Park hill with over 75 tons of snow. No matter your age, you’re invited to play in the snow, participate in interactive science demonstrations by the Center’s Blue Crew, and explore a unique onsite Subaru experience.

Enhance your experience with ice-themed shows in our Dorrance Planetarium and Irene P. Flinn Giant Screen Theater, and hands-on activities in CREATE at Arizona Science Center, a community makerspace including 3D printing, laser cutting, microcontrollers, woodworking, and sewing.

Plus, it’s the perfect time to see POMPEII: THE EXHIBITION. Experience what nature destroyed but also preserved.
