A Message from the HSC Staff

The staff at HSC says, "Please participate in Give to the Max Day on November 14th to help make HSC even better and more exciting for the kids (and adults) of northern Minnesota."

The theme for HSC is all about water: "Drop-by-Drop You Can Make a Difference." Create the vernal pool, make the river flow, fill the lake and make the ocean roar.

Please come visit us soon.

Last year, more than 53,000 individual donors logged on to and gave more than $16.3 million to nearly 4,400 Minnesota nonprofits and schools in 24 hours during Give to the Max Day. Nov. 14 is the fifth annual Give to the Max Day.

This is the third year that HSC has participated. It's always a fun and exciting day!

Win a golden ticket 

A nonprofit will be randomly chosen every hour to have $1,000 added to their donation. Additionally, two $10,000 Super-sized Golden Tickets will be randomly drawn at the end of the event.  You can split your donation up into many separate donations and enter an amount (min $10) any hour to increase your chances for winning a prize.

Boofest - October 31st

 Halloween is coming and here at Headwaters Science Center that means Boofest, our activity-based, family-oriented Halloween party. Upstairs we set up carnival games and downstairs the exhibit floor is open free of charge during Boofest hours.

Try the pumpkin ring toss, make some slime, bob for donuts, or win a treat on the witches walk.
If you are not interested in coming to play please consider volunteering your time to help with this community Halloween party. We love having older kids help run the carnival games and welcome parents to assist with the younger volunteers.

Boofest will be Thursday, October 31 from 4 -7. Come join us for a fun time and don’t forget your costume!
