At the Pacific Science Center opening May 24, the last time these amazing historical artifacts will be on display in North America. Today tickets go on sale and it’s just one of those exhibitions that you will likely never forget. It may even be necessary to go several times, and I know my son, who’s interested in archaeology of all kinds, will be lit up by the opportunity.
Tut was a boy king and his tomb was opened 89 years ago by a British archaeologist, Howard Carter. Seattle will be able to experience the dazzling world of the Pharaohs right here in our own “backyard” and dream the golden dreams of the ancient Egyptian world. This is a chance to bring the ancient real world home to our own experience, rather than just sitting back and letting it flash by on TV!
There are also two interesting February events taking place at our local Science mecca, one is local noted astrophysicist Adam Frank who will discuss Revolutions in Time, Culture, and the Cosmos before a live studio audience at the Pacific Science Center (tickets are limited) which will also be streamed. How has human perception of time changed throughout history? What is our perception now and how does that affect our experience of our lives, and what we accomplish? How we communicate? How we live? Promises to be fascinating.
The other is an opportunity for 6th to 8th graders, the Mercer Slough Environmental Education Center is offering a two day Winter Treks; Search and Rescue program for this age group Feb 22-23. They will learn some search and rescue techniques and tools then go out on a snowshoe trip trying out some real life rescue scenarios. Are you kidding me? What a great program. You can call 206-443-2925 for more info.
