This is the place to ring in the New Year all afternoon with an energetic blend of math, physics, fun, and art. Design your own party hat, craft a noise maker, and get ready to be showered with confetti. Rick Shark and Ryan Seahorse are your hosts each hour as we track the New Year across the globe and count down to fun! Included with Discovery Center admission.
