It was a BIG weekend at Orlando Science Center, and that's putting it mildly!
Thanks to the support of the Walmart Foundation, admission was only $5 per person. More than 4,000 visitors were able to experience everything the Science Center has to offer including all four floors of exhibits, giant screen and digital 3-D films, and live programs.
As if that wasn't enough, it was also the return of Greenovations—a day of activities centered around renewable energy, recycling and energy-efficient technologies. OUC - The Reliable One, Florida Renewable Energy Association, World Housing Solutions, the City of Orlando, Lemongrass Edible Landscaping, Harry P. Leu Gardens, Waste Management and other community partners helped us make small steps that can make a big impact toward caring for our planet.
The Orlando Science Center opened its newest exhibit, Adventures with Clifford the Big Red Dog, beginning with a members-only preview. More than 600 Science Center members were able to enjoy the exhibit before it was open to the public. They even had the opportunity to have their photo taken with Clifford™ himself! Find and download your photos with Clifford from the event here!

If this video doesn't whet your appetite, nothing will. Dan Drayer, executive chef for Talk of the Town Restaurants, shares what Charley's Steakhouse will have for guests at the 2013 Science of Wine.
Charley's Steak House is family-owned and has operated since 1974. They offer a fabulous menu of typical and not-so-typical steakhouse fare. Enjoy their menu offerings as well as other Talk of the Town Restaurants at the 2013 Science of Wine on May 11!
The 15th annual Dr. Ying Science Competition is in the books and two was the lucky number for Brevard County's Sarah Van Sickle of Satellite High School.
Sarah was in last year's contest when she finished as a runner up, but the additional year of research won her the 2013 competition. She was awarded a trophy, a $5,000 cash scholarship plus $1,000 awards for her science teacher and her school.
Her efforts improved on the design of the antenna, which is based on fractal geometry and receives both UHF and VHF frequencies for less money than the cost of a commercial device. Since broadcast television is an important communications tool, this research could enable everyone to have access to multiple over-the-air transmissions at a fraction of the cost. This research would be especially valuable for those living in remote areas, Third World countries or people in post-disaster areas where cable or satellite transmissions are inaccessible.
