REVIEW: Terracotta Warriors of the First Emperor - Through Sep. 4
The Pacific Science is the first stop of a brand new traveling, Terracotta Warriors of the First Emperor which uncovers a secret that had been hidden from the world for over 2,000 years. The story goes something like this: Not that long ago, a small group of farmers in China were digging a well when they discovered an ancient artifact. They weren’t sure if it was the head of a Buddha (where they might have opened up a curse) or that it was some relic that they could get some money for at the local market. When they dug around some more, they discovered that the head belonged to a much larger statue; a six-foot-tall soldier made out of clay. More info>>>

K1 Speed
No matter the weather, it always safe to race at K1 Speed in Redmond. Unlike the other K1 Speed locations in California, the Redmond location has a concrete racing surface instead of an asphalt racing surface. “This in no way diminishes the racing experience however; in fact, we would say that in many ways it enhances the experience by adding a new level of excitement and difficulty!,” says the owners. “Our green, eco-friendly 20hp electric karts have superb performance and finessing them around the concrete racing surface of our track is an exhilarating experience.” More info>>>

Seattle Pinball Museum

Built as a labor of love, the Seattle Pinball Museum first opened its doors in 2010 as a way to provide vintage pinball machines as an interactive display of kinetic art.
