Every Third Wednesday Is Special at HSC

Every third Wednesday something special happens at Headwaters Science Center. On this day a miniature horse, called a therapy horse, comes to visit the Tots-n-Science group from 10:00-11:00 am. Therapy horses are exceedingly social animals and seem to love the attention bestowed upon them by young people. Needless to say the kids are enthralled to have a real horse in the same room with them.

Headwaters Science Center offers programs for children ages 3-6 on each Wednesday. Bring your child to these programs for stories, hands on activities, and games to help children learn about things going on in their environment. Come and touch the science!
  •  Adults must accompany children.
  •  Pre-register by the day before the program. Call (218) 444-4472 to register.
  • Program times: 10:00-11:00 AM each Wednesday.
 The cost is only $4 per child (exhibit floor not included). Adults are free and must accompany children. Pre-registration by the day before is recommended, or a program could be cancelled for lack of tots.

"Spirited Elements," the first event of the four-part series "Elements of Our Future,” will feature beer and wine tastings paired with local and seasonal food. A live auction of elements from the periodic table and other unique items will take place during the evening, and the BSU Music Department ensemble Voltage will entertain guests with “hands-on” music. Please join Headwaters Science Center, 413 Beltrami Avenue, Bemidji, on November 10th from 7 to 9 pm to be an "Element of Our Future.” Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased in advance via phone 218-444-4472, or in person at HSC, or at the door on November 10th.

Seasonal brews provided by Bemidji Brewing and Leech Lake Brewing Company, and wines from local vineyards, will be available to sample. Bar 209 will prepare local and seasonal foods provided by Natural Choice Farmer's Market and local growers. Dessert from Chocolates Plus and coffee from Cantabria Coffee will complete the evening.

Tammy Tisland and Aasness Auctioneers will be auctioning a limited number of elements at the event. Purchase an element from the Periodic Table and have your name or business permanently inscribed. This is a unique opportunity to become an "Element of Our Future"
