Dia De Los Muertos Skeleton Exhibit at Discovery Science Center

Head-to-Toe-skeletons_webheaderThe Taco Bell Discovery Science Center has found a unique way to blend the Mexican holiday Dia De Los Muertos with their upcoming Head to Toe Exhibit, which teaches children how the body functions. The big exhibit opens on Saturday, but from October 17th through November 8th, they will have a special sub-exhibit that focuses on skeletons. This year they will have a Dia De Los Muertos flavor to the event, which you can read more about HERE.

During this time of the year, many Latino children are exposed to the calaveras and skeletons, and the Discovery Science Center is presenting an exhibit where children can come and learn about their significance and its importance to the human body. A great learning experience for Santa Ana’s children. The Discovery Science Center is a terrific place to expose our children to science. Despite what some people may say, Latino children do need to be exposed to Science and this museum is a great addition to our community.

    “.. Despite what some people may say, Latino children do need to be exposed to Science..”

    Claudio,

    Here you sound unnecessarily accusatory and whiney – a lot like Art Pedroza.

    And there goes “junior” being junior–living in a lala world where no one is racist, least of all those in Orange County. Keep fighting the good fight, Claudio!

    Actually, why even preface the word “children” with Latino? All children need to be exposed to science, but Claudio’s point is if the Science Center can use the Dia DeLos Muertos holiday for a teaching tool, that’s a pretty creative way to do things.
