Learn About What You Want to be When You Grow Up

Discovery Place Kids Rockingham

Investigate all different kinds of community helpers and learn why they are so important to us all November long at Discovery Place Kids-Rockingham. What do you want to be when you grow up? A policeman or fireman? What about a veterinarian?

On weekdays at 11:15 a.m. and 2:15 p.m., join us for physics-themed activities all month long.

  • Tuesdays & Thursdays- The People in Your Neighborhood: Do you know the community helpers in our neighborhood? Join us as at The Lab we investigate some of our favorite community helpers and what they do each day.
  • Wednesdays & Fridays- What’s Your Emergency?: Community helpers like police officers, firefighters and emergency medical staff come to the rescue when you’re in trouble and help keep us safe. Stop, drop and roll your way to the Sandhills Stage as we investigate these hometown heroes and what they do on the job.

What can we do with our little explorers over the weekend?

All month long, join us on Saturdays at 11:15 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. or Sundays at 2:15 p.m. to put your architect skills to the test in our timed building challenge in Little Builders. Imagination, creation, designing and construction are all a part of building our community.
