Ultimate Dinosaurs

October 10, 2014 - April 12, 2015 - All Day at Science Center of Iowa
401 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway

Millions of years ago, the super-continent Pangaea broke apart, and dinosaurs became passengers on these drifting land masses. The result? Dinosaurs with unusual – and sometimes bizarre – features that are different from the ones we know and love.

Based on new, groundbreaking research from scientists around the world,Ultimate Dinosaurs reveals a new breed of dinosaurs that evolved in isolation in South America, Africa and Madagascar.  From the tiny Buitreraptor to the massive Giganotosaurus (T. rex‘s bigger, badder cousin), Ultimate Dinosaurs is a fascinating study of species you may not have met before.  See Ultimate Dinosaurs October 12, 2014, through April 12, 2015, at SCI!

Solar Eclipse Event

October 23, 2014 - 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm at Science Center of Iowa
401 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway

Join staff from SCI and the Des Moines Astronomical Society to view the annular solar eclipse! SCI will have telescopes with solar filters for you to safely view the eclipse.

solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partially obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. We will view 66% obscuration in Iowa – two-thirds of the Sun will be covered by the Moon. This is the last solar eclipse visible from Iowa until 2014 when we will only see 44% obscuration.  This event is in partnership with the Des Moines Astronomical Society.
