The Discovery Museum is hosting a Movie Night on their lawn for free as a thank you to the community for years of support and to celebrate their 40th anniversary. To celebrate the many trailblazing women of NASA and their contributions to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (also known as STEM) — kids and young adults can try a hands-on engineering activity before enjoying their screening of “Hidden Figures.” Then after the movie, enjoy a frozen treat from VeeBop’s Ice Cream truck!
