About Discovery Science Center - Orange County
Imaginations run wild through more than 100 hands-on exhibits at Discovery Science Center, Orange County's leading destination for hands-on science fun. Take the Eco Challenge and become a green superhero, feel the power of a real rocket engine "launch", explore the inner workings of a two-story tall dinosaur and try your best slap shot against the Anaheim Duck's goalie! Traveling exhibits and annual events such as Spooky Science and Bubblefest throughout the year ensure that there is always something new to discover. Currently on display is Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology, an interactive exhibit experience following Dr. Jones through the four famous films. Since 1998, Discovery Science Center has been a non-profit organization dedicated to educating young minds, assisting teachers and increasing public understanding of science, math and technology through interactive exhibits and programs.
