Winter Science Spectacular! says
Celebrate the holiday season with some science!

Open for a Limited Time! Dec 19, 2015 – Jan 3, 2016*
*Closed on December 24 and 25

Just because we don’t experience truly white winters in Florida, doesn’t mean you have to miss out on playing with snow, skating and other holiday treats! For a limited time, Orlando Science Center presents the Winter Science Spectacular, a holiday learning experience the entire family can enjoy!

In the Winter Science Spectacular, we will make it snow indoors! You can create holiday gifts, decorations and other crafts at our holiday workshop zone. Then, at our story nook, curl up and read a holiday story. Strap on some ice skates and hop on our indoor skating rink for a winter treat Floridians don’t always get to experience!


No need to bring your winter coats and galoshes when you go skating on our indoor skating rink made of a special material for friction-free skating. This indoor synthetic ice skating rink will have you scratching your head wondering how you can ice skate with no ice!


Check out our Discovering Winter programs to learn more about winters outside of Florida.

During “Animals in Winter,” learn how different animals like squirrels, bears and even bees adapt to the cold weather changes in the areas they live in. Learn how the stay safe and healthy by hibernating, migrating, adapting and more!

This area will also provide and introduction to snow for those of us who aren’t able to experience it this holiday season. Find out what it’s like to be outside in snowy weather and learn the science behind why there are different types of snow!


It’s time for crafts and messy activities! At select times, join us at the crafting tables for some hands-on holiday fun. Here are some of the activities you may be able to experience during your visit, but remember to check our Science Live! schedule to view times so you don’t miss out!
