RACE FOR PLANET X
A mobile science museum called The Race for Planet ‘X’ will visit Blytheville Aug. 9-15. The mobile museum will be free and open to the public thanks to sponsorship by Mississippi County Arkansas Equal Opportunity Commission Head Start.
This exciting experience is a "museum on wheels" with 10 interactive exhibits designed to engage visitors in engineering skills. Children and adults will execute assignments on computer aided design, aerodynamic testing and laser beam splitting to gather information about Planet 'X'.
Activities for kids related to the exhibit will be held at Delta Gateway Museum on Fri, Aug. 11 and Sat, Aug. 12.
The Race for Planet ‘X’ is operated by the Arkansas Discovery Network and funded in part by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation.
Housed in the historic Kress Building in the heart of Blytheville’s Commercial Historic District, this regional heritage museum illustrates broad historical themes in one of the world’s most fertile agricultural regions. Planned exhibitions focus on the development of cotton, soybean, and rice agriculture, along with interrelated topics such as the timber industry and swamp drainage; river, rail, & highway transportation; earthquakes, flooding, and flood control; prehistoric Native American culture; and the regional impact of the Air Force base and steel industry.
