As the weather temps steadily increase and kids look forward to summer break, parents try to plan activities that are both educational and offer the comforts of air conditioning. The Arizona Science Center located in downtown Phoenix, AZ is a great option. Its popularity has grown over the previous years since it has opened in 1980 and remains a great candidate for a summer field trip. Adults and children of all ages visit the center regularly for its hands-on exploration of the 164,000 square foot building. Daily classes, presentations, planetarium, IMAX Theater, outdoor water Lego area and the permanent and featured exhibits are all reasons to check it out this summer.
One of the current exhibits, Forces of Nature is one you won’t want to miss. Surrounded by big screen TV’s and the latest technology (some being high powered fans, sprinkler system and heat lamps), visitors are confined to a stage-like area where they will experience the multiple “forces of nature”; hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes and AZ’s heat wave and flash floods. The experience isn’t more than 15 minutes in length, however the thrill of the exhibit will want you to do it at least one more time before you exit the Science Center.
The Arizona Science Center is open everyday of the year, except Thanksgiving and Christmas Day for the hours of 10am -5pm. You can learn more about the activities the center offers, including exhibits, summer camps and IMAX Theater programs on their website.

"Reliable. Knowledgeable. Trustworthy. These are the words that come to mind when I think of the experience my wife and I had with Smart Concept team members Jami and Josh Asanovich. They helped us find a house that was perfect for us and within our budget. Jami was always there to answer questions and concerns throughout the entire home buying process. She did everything within her power to accommodate our needs. I can honestly say buying a home through the Smart Concept team was a truly great experience. If you want a realtor that will listen to your wants and needs Jami is the realtor for you. She truly cares about the happiness of her clients. So much so that we now consider her and her family as dear friends. Thank you Jami and Josh! For everything!
