Discovery Science Center | Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination

Today my mom is taking my son to the Discovery Science Center to see the Star Wars exhibit.

Discovery Science Center is Orange County’s leading destination for hands-on science fun with more than 100 interactive exhibits in themed areas.

Imagine a world with humanoid robots translating languages, landspeeders whizzing down the highway, and X-wing Starfighters protecting the skies. Could these technologies, limited only to the fantasy worlds of Star Wars™, actually become a reality?

Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination, presented by Bose Corporation.
  • Build and test your own speeders and robots
  • Ride a hovercraft and try your hand at steering
  • See real artifacts, costumes & props from all 6 Star Wars films
  • Explore the technology of droids and landspeeders

Millennium Falcon Experience
Experience a virtual jump to lightspeed in a full-size replica of the cockpit of Star Wars Episode IV’s Millennium Falcon as a multimedia presentation explores what we know about our own galaxy in a breathtaking ride to the edge of the Universe. This experience is $5 after general admission.

The exhibition is made possible through the cooperation of Lucasfilm Ltd.

Zooey Deschanel's version of 'Yesterday Once More' by The Carpenters

Zooey Deschanel from HelloGiggles and New Girl sings 'Yesterday Once More' by The Carpenters. I wasn't but 2 years old when this song was released, however, I can remember listening to this song all the time in the late 70's when I was kid.  I love this song and I love Zooey's version!
