Discovery Science Center to Host \'Anaheim Ducks Week\' from October 15-23
The Ducks have partnered with Discovery Science Center (DSC) to host Anaheim Ducks Week from Oct. 15-23. In celebration of the start of the 2011-12 regular season, all children ages 3-14 wearing Anaheim Ducks gear (hat, t-shirt or jersey) will receive free admission to DSC. Home to the Science of Hockey exhibit, DSC is a 3,000 square foot permanent space that is the largest interactive and educational hockey exhibition in the United States. The exhibit is nearing its one millionth visitor since opening in April 2009.

“We are extremely proud of our partnership with Discovery Science Center,” said Ducks Chief Executive Officer Michael Schulman. “Having nearly one million visitors to the Science of Hockey since its opening is a great tribute to the exhibit and DSC.”

DSC will be on site at Honda Center on Sunday, Oct. 16 at the “Hockey Spot” from 3-5 p.m. Fans can stop by and learn about the Science of Hockey and 100+ hands-on exhibits at DSC, Orange County’s leading destination for hands-on science fun. Family-friendly interactive games and special offers will be available at the DSC booth. The one millionth visitor to the Science of Hockey at DSC is anticipated to arrive this month and will be awarded with a party suite to an upcoming Anaheim Ducks game and an annual Family Membership to DSC.

“The partnership between Discovery Science Center and the Anaheim Ducks has been incredibly successful,” said Joe Adams, President of Discovery Science Center. “Through this fun and interactive exhibit, we have been able to reach close to one million people highlighting science in the thrilling setting of an ice hockey game.”

The Science of Hockey exhibit at DSC, created in partnership with the Anaheim Ducks, NHL and USA Hockey opened in April 2009. The Samueli Foundation and Anaheim Ducks Foundation contributed $2 million to fund the project. Located on DSC’s second floor, the Science of Hockey turns the excitement of a hockey game into an interactive learning experience. Visitors to the state-of-the-art exhibit explore how physics and physiology relate to the game. Divided into two parts, the Ice Rink portion includes science lessons taught through elements visible within Honda Center during a Ducks game, and the Locker Room portion includes science lessons taught behind-the-scenes before the Ducks suit up for a practice or game. Such lessons include discovering the properties of ice while riding a Zamboni® and learning Newton’s laws of motion through virtual exhibits like “Be the Goalie” and “Be the Shooter.”

Located at 2500 N. Main St. in Santa Ana, Calif., Discovery Science Center is easily recognizable by its 10-story solar Cube and Delta III Rocket that tower over Interstate 5.
