Winter is Coming!

The forecast this winter at Sci-Port Discovery Center is calling for SNOW!!  So, gather your holiday sweaters and prepare for a blustery season at our new exhibition, Sno-Port: The Science and Wonder of Snowflakes beginning November 30th and ending January 30th.

The Sno-Port exhibition was created by Apex Communications and Events, in conjunction with a variety of local fabricating, lighting and engineering professionals. In preparation to meet the emerging educational demands of STEM in local and national education, the team has developed activities which highlight a variety of science fields, including geoscience, biology, physics, mathematics, architecture, engineering, computer science, and chemistry.  Sno-Port consists of a variety of interactive snow and ice-themed exhibits, displays, and games as well information about the science and wonder of snow and snowflakes for visitors and students of all ages. (LSS’s available upon request)

Interactive games and activities include:

  • The Red River Rocket Sled: Feel the excitement and take-off with the sensation of the cool wind on your face as you trek your way through a virtual reality blizzard in downtown Shreveport and Bossier City inside our Space Dome Planetarium!
  • Blizzard Tunnel: Transform into a snowflake as you enter into the exhibit.
  • Make A Flake: Make a snowflake as individual as you are to hang in the ceiling with hundreds of other snowflakes.
  • Ice Fishing: Grab a pole and go fishing in an animated ice pond. View virtual reality fish as they swim under the surface.
  • Snow Chair Lift: How high can you pump up your ski lift chair?
  • Snowball Castle: Toss a “snowball” into the windows of the snow-covered castle to initiate a series of bells.
