There is so much to do at Sci-bono for children of different ages and adults. I was impressed to see that they had a holiday program to provide computer programming training at no cost.

We came for a kid's Birthday party and the kids had a blast. They had a science show for them and there are so many things for the kids to do. Doesn't matter what the weather is like as it's all indoors.
