Tuesday, February 21, 2017:  301 North Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC; check-in between 10 and noon

Come and spend the day with NCHE at Discovery Place Science Museum, one of the top-rated science museums in the nation. Enrich your students' education with a trip to the Rain Forest, a hands-on encounter with out-of-the-ordinary animals, or an interactive visit with a chemist.  Be lifted high in the air by a vacuum powered Air Chair or lie on a bed of nails unharmed.  The youngest visitors (age 0-7) and their caregivers will enjoy the KidScience, a room full of hands-on learning.

Learn about 13th century Mongolia through the special, limited time exhibit of Genghis Khan.  With more than 200 items on exhibit, view the weaponry, musical instruments and everyday artifacts of life during the Mongol empire.  

Choose from two optional IMAX film experiences:  The Mysteries of China or Secret Ocean
