Can’t say up late? Ring in 2012 with Science Central’s Annual Countdown to Noon! Want to share the excitement of the New Year countdown with your kids, but don’t think they can make it to midnight? Then make plans now to join Science Central’s annual Countdown to Noon celebration!  

  The doors will open at 10am on Saturday, December 31, and everyone is welcome to enjoy educational, hands-on activities. Demonstrations and activities will have a New Year’s theme -- creating a calendar, party hats and noisemakers. As the noon hour approaches there will be a toast to the New Year with soda, and then the countdown begins! As the clock strikes noon, ring in 2012 with Science Central’s trademark 1,000 balloon drop! Admission for Countdown to Noon is $8 per person, ages 3 – adult.   Science Central has provided science-based, active learning for the Fort Wayne community for over 15 years. Since it opened, Science Central has educated and entertained nearly 140,000 children each year!
