Halloween and science come together at the Discovery Science Center.

Discovery Science Center (DSC):  2500 N Main St  Santa Ana, CA 92705
Located near the Santa Ana Mall off Main Street is one of Orange County's award winning science museums. It is one of 10 recipients of this year’s National Medal for Museum and Library Service. This fall they are having fun with science and Ripley's Believe it or Not exhibit.
Spooky Science at the Discovery Science Center is filled with lots of learning opportunities. They have Spiders, pumpkins, chemistry lessons, 3D ART Maze, Ripley's Believe or not exhibit as well as their regular exhibits. I visited with my family as part of media night and found myself enjoying the education it offered. 
Halloween is the best season to teach about vocabulary words such as weird, strange, bizarre and out of the ordinary. The Ripley's Believe it or Not exhibit offers a fun way to learn about strange and out of the ordinary things. Standing in the middle of the Ripley's believe it or not exhibit, I found myself saying strange, eccentric and weird. Together with my family, we found out that candy can make beautiful art (Justin Bieber portrait) and that Robert Wadlow, the world’s tallest man, grew to be 8 feet 11 inches tall. There was a great photo opportunity of very large shark teeth. All of these are a must see when you visit the DSC.

Nothing is impossible for an artist. I spent several minutes looking this piece over at the Ripley's Believe it or not exhibit. I could not take my eyes off the art piece, because I could feel the love it took to create it.  I imagined the love and patience's it must have taken to match up each toy. This is truly a wonderful piece that made me smile. 

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."

My visit to the DSC reminded me that there is always something new to learn in life. My hope is that you continue to seek knowledge and find the beauty in your community. Have a great time this fall season celebrating it. Have a happy Halloween.
