I Heart Frost Science

Ready to get pumped up?

Frost Science is celebrating American Heart Month with a special day dedicated to learning about one of the body’s most essential organs: the heart. Join us on Sunday, February 18, for “I Heart Frost Science,” as you get to explore the center of our circulatory system through a series of special activities and programming.

In anticipation of Disney’s mind-bending adventure A WRINKLE IN TIME, in theatres March 9, participate in mind-bending brain teasers to receive exclusive prizes from the film and for a chance to win passes to a special 3D advance screening. A WRINKLE IN TIME programming will be available from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
