October Events

It’s shaping up to be an exciting October at the Greensboro Science Center! Not only are we celebrating our 60th anniversary, but we’ve also got a great fall festival and an eerie evening of spectacularly spooky sights and sounds planned!

Celebrating 60 Years of Science

During the entire month of October, we’ll be spotlighting some special memories from the past 60 years on our Facebook page, but we need YOUR help! Share an old photo, a special memory or a creative piece of art inspired by the Greensboro Science Center on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #GSC60. Not only will you be helping us to make strides on our journey down memory lane, but you’ll have a chance to win an awesome prize, too!
