History Happy Hour & Trivia Game Night
Let history make you HAPPY!
SCM is hosting its inaugural adults-only History Happy Hour & Trivia Game on Wednesday, December 17th from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm.

Please note that this is an 'adults-only' event. Trivia game will begin at 6:30 pm. Register for this event here.
The Augmented Reality Sandbox is now OPEN!
Developed by a researcher from UC Davis, the ARS allows children to create their own topographical landscapes using sand, which is changed in real time by a digital overlay that shows contour lines and simulated water. The terrain is brought to life by an overhead projector, combining the tactile childhood joy of playing with sand with the latest in virtual reality technology. Our sand box scientists will become world builders, drawing shapes and formations in the sand, creating mountains and valleys, and activating digital rainfall to explore how water behaves in the constantly shifting landscape. The ARS encourages play, curiosity and self-driven discovery, making connections between cause and effect, and requiring minimal instruction for children to grasp the basic concepts.
