Science Central held an alternative event to ring in the New Year on Tuesday.“Countdown to Noon” gave parents the option of a family-friendly

alternative to late-night New Year's Eve celebrations. This is the 14th year that Science Central has held the event.

Children and adults participated in a variety of activity tables and science

demonstrations, all focused on traditional New Year's Eve activities. Children's activities included making party hats, noisemakers, and face painting. Visitors were also able to view city lights around the world on Science Central's new permanent exhibit, “Science On a Sphere,” and the current traveling exhibition,"Electricity!" At noon balloons were released from the ceiling.

There were also the usual activities and displays. Kara Johnson brought her two children, Noah Johnson, 2, and Selah Johnson, 4, to the event. It was the first year she has taken her children and said they were having a great time.



Besides the activities there was also free “champagne,” i.e. clear soda in plastic champagne glasses served along with cookies.

Doris Lemert, director of marketing and development, said she expected them to have a very busy day with over 1,000 visitors to the event.
