Season of Science
Buh-bye, pumpkin spice. Hello, season of science! As the holidays ramp up, so does the Perot Museum of Nature and Science as it celebrates an exciting “season of science” in honor of its 5th birthday on Dec. 1. Since opening in 2012, the Perot Museum has welcomed and inspired more than 5.5 million minds, engaged 90,000 North Texans through off-site community outreach, served 1.2 million students through field trips and school education programs, awarded $2 million in financial aid, welcomed 32,500 through the Community Partners ticket offer and has been the grateful recipient of more than 250,000 service hours from a dedicated team of volunteers. And there’s plenty for guests to get excited about during this celebratory month, from $5 admission on Dec. 3 and more activities during the winter break, to a fascinating space exhibition, new 3D films and one seriously big chunk of gold.
