Great Lakes Science Center programs
The Great Lakes Science Center is presenting “Titans of the Ice Age” in the Dome Theater, a new slate of themed STEM activities and the extension of the “Body Worlds Rx” exhibition.
“Titans of the Ice Age” takes viewers to the frozen landscapes of North America, Europe and Asia 10,000 years before modern civilization. Computer-generated imagery brings this era to life — from saber-toothed cats and giant sloths to the iconic mammoths, giants both feared and hunted by prehistoric humans. “Titans of the Ice Age,” narrated by the late Christopher Plummer, will show at 5 p.m. on Thursdays, and at noon and 4 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. “Titans” will rotate with the return of Science Center favorite “Tornado Alley,” which follows “Storm Chasers” star Sean Casey and the researchers of VORTEX 2, a project to understand the origins and evolution of tornadoes. “Tornado Alley” will screen at 7 p.m. on Thursdays and 2 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
The science center also is dedicating February to a program called “Extraordinary Engineering” on Saturdays and Sundays for a special heart dissection family workshop (with an extra session on Thursday nights), a flashlight design challenge workshop and the Simple Machines Science Show.
“Body Worlds Rx” has been extended to April 3. It is an exploration of the intricate biology and physiology of human health.
