This box is located on the grounds of the Sci-Port Discovery Center. This is a first-rate, hands-on science center that will entertain and educate all ages. The center was first opened in November, 1998 on the Shreveport downtown riverfront. In all there are 67,000 square feet of exhibition space with over 200 interactive exhibits covering everything from how the human body works to an exploration of the physical sciences.

Of special interest is the Red River Gallery. Who doesn’t want to play on a paddle-wheeler or see a real live alligator? This particular exhibit focuses on science related issues unique to Northwest Louisiana. Other exhibits include the Children’s Discovery Gallery which is especially designed for guests between ages 3-6. There are also special touring exhibits throughout the year, so check often to see what you can do next!

Did we mention the IMAX Dome Theater (one of only 28 in the entire nation)? This venue sports a 60-foot dome screen which puts you right in the center of all the action. Be sure you check to see what is playing!

Visit Sam Hicks. Find your shadow. Face “center” and plant your feet in December. Find the short light post that is in line with 3:30. Look amidst the bushes around the trunk of the tree directly behind that post. Your discovery should be waiting. Stamp in with your own ink and be discreet. This is a very high traffic area!
