It’s back to school for Leon County Schools on Monday.
Today the Challenger Learning Center held a back to school bash for children and their families. Folks enjoyed hands on science demonstrations and tours of the space mission simulator. The center also held several free screenings in its IMAX and Planetarium theaters, including Madagascar's Island of Lemurs, Hidden Universe, and The Last Reef.
Staff at the center says it’s their way of saying thank you for a great summer. Michelle Personette, the Executive Director of Challenger Learning Center, said, "The community supports us. We are a non-profit. And the community supports us throughout the year. This is our way to give back to them. It's an exciting time. All the kids are going back to school and we want to make sure the community and the kids are ready and excited to go back to school."
The back to school bash was held as part of Visit Tallahassee’s Tour program.
