The school year has ended, temperatures are rising, and fun is in the air! This summer, beat the heat by heading to Frisco for a day of learning and new experiences at Sci-Tech Discovery Center.

Located inside the Frisco Discovery Center, we visited Sci-Tech on a Saturday. Our girls are young (3.5 and 1.5), thus can only handle visiting a place for a few hours, so using our Pogo Pass for the visit was perfect!

**The Frisco Discovery Center is also home to the National Videogame Museum included in the Pogo Pass!** Father’s Day is approaching…consider taking Dad here and surprising him with a Nintendo Switch. Forget Zelda, you’ll be his hero of the year!**

When we arrived, the cashier asked if we were registered for “Science with a Princess”. We had not signed up in advance (required), but they happened to have someone cancel. A spot opened and my husband and oldest daughter took it!

While our preschooler enjoyed some time with science and Snow White, the toddler and I walked around. There were different exhibits (most appropriate for school-aged kids) that caught her attention but were quite literally out of reach. She was able to interact with a few exhibit items, but her favorite was comparing herself to Dirk Nowitzki’s ginormous wingspan and shoe size. Basically same as my little peanut, right? 😉

After about 30 minutes, I saw my husband moseying around the space with my almost 4-year-old who was supposed to be at Science with a Princess. He said she was definitely too young for the activities, but all of the other kids seemed to be loving it!

The last part of the facility we visited was the room farthest to the back. Two words: HUGE BUBBLES. I wish I could get some of that bubble solution because it was amazing. The bubbles we created were amazing and I think I enjoyed it more than my kids!

If you are looking for a summer camp for your kids, preschool story time with a science kick, or a place to host a science-based birthday party, be sure to check them out!
