Seuss Day Saturday at the Science Center


November 29, 2001|By Tricia Bishop

The Maryland Science Center has taken a turn for the weird. Its newest exhibit is full of freaky features, including a wall of blue goo, a seven-hump wump, Nupboards in cupboards and some capped kitty's cleanup machine. In other words, Seuss is on the loose.

The interactive exhibit features life-size scenes from some of Theodore Geisel's (aka Dr. Seuss) best-loved books (The Cat in the Hat; One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish; There's a Wocket in My Pocket!) as well as Seuss artwork - some for sale - and an area celebrating the writer's creative process and life achievements.

On Saturday, the center teams up with Baltimore Reads, a nonprofit group promoting literacy, to offer free Seuss Day admission to kids bearing books for donation (with a paying adult; $11). The event kicks off at 11 a.m. and includes Seussian science demonstrations, appearances by the Cat in the Hat, giveaways, crafts and activities. Area television and radio celebs (Fox 45's Harold Fisher and WQSR's Kristie McIntyre, among them) will read Seuss books on the hour through the event's end at 3 p.m.

The Maryland Science Center is at 601 Light St. For more information, call 410-685-5225.
