First Day of Summer

The first day of summer might make one think of a sunny stroll along the river or a fresh lunch on an outdoor patio. At the Carnegie Science Center, it’s snowballs.

Each year, the science center hosts its annual “Snowball Launch,” to ring in the warm season. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own snowball (likely saved in the back of the freezer since winter) to receive free admission and throw them via slingshot into the Ohio River.
