Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination to End on April 15!


SANTA ANA, CA – Time is running out on the largest and most successful traveling exhibit in Discovery Science Center (DSC) history. Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination, the blockbuster exhibit, is jumping to hyperspace and leaving this galaxy on April 15. Don’t miss your last opportunity to view and explore the out-of-this-world technologies shown in all six Star Wars films, how they were generated, and the modern day work that may someday lead to real-life versions.

Since opening in November of 2011, the Science Center has hosted this unbelievable collection of real models, props, costumes, artifacts and hands-on science activities from the Star Wars saga. In fact, DSC expanded their own universe by creating three brand new exhibit viewing galleries. “Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination has far exceeded our wildest expectations,” said Joe Adams, President of Discovery Science Center. “The exhibit has been nothing short of a game-changer for the Center.”

On display for the last time in Southern California, this exhibit is not to be missed!
