I remember the simplicity of toys when I was growing up.
Jacks and a ball.
A jump rope.
Those were the good ole days.
This Saturday,a special event called “Domino Days”, will be held at the Maryland Science Center on from 12:30-2:30 p.m.
Fun is falling into place at Domino Days, the Maryland Science Center’s annual tilting and toppling extravaganza, taking place Saturday, April 20 from 12:30pm-2:30pm.
Visitors will watch world-renowned domino topple expert Scott Suko, along with a team of local engineering volunteers, create a massive domino tumble throughout the Maryland Science Center’s Legg Mason Gallery – 12,000 dominoes in all.
Guests will see the set-up and stack dominos at “do it yourself” tables around the Maryland Science Center, testing designs of their own and getting advice from experts – including Scott.
The topple starts at 2:00pm, with multi-colored dominos of various sizes zig-zagging, spiraling, climbing stairs, crossing tables and collapsing into pyramids.
Scott Suko was a member of the team that created the Around the World Domino Topple for the 1986 Coca-Cola Centennial Celebration which was noted in the Guinness Book of World Records. Scott retired from domino toppling in 2005, but is making a comeback for this event.
Domino Day is made possible by Northrop Grumman and RFID Global Solution.
All Domino Day activities are free with paid admission to the Maryland Science Center. The Maryland Science Center is located at 601 Light Street at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. For information and ticket prices, visit www.marylandsciencecenter.org or call the 24-Hour Information Line at 410-685-5225.
Kaden and I are going to try to check this event out. Of course there is still all the fun of the other activities at the Maryland Science Center. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit last time.
If you're looking for something fun to do with the family this weekend, perhaps we'll see you there.
My family was provided complimentary admission tickets to the Maryland Science Center. The opinions and views are my own.
