About this time each year, I get antsy for warmer, brighter weather. I’ve finished the books on my winter reading list, caught up on the shows I missed during the busy autumn months…and I’m ready to get out and about. If you are also feeling a touch of cabin fever, I hope you’ll bring the little learners in your life out for Seuss Science Day on Saturday, February 8 at the Discovery Center of Springfield.

This annual event is one of our favorite days of the year. Children and families from across the Ozarks join us for a day of fun, as we celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday. The celebration includes science experiments, book readings, all the interactive learning the Discovery Center has to offer, and – back by popular demand – the Cat in the Hat himself.

Members of the OPT KIDS Club are invited to be our guests at the event. If your family is already signed up, watch for your free tickets in the mail. If you’re interested in joining the OPT KIDS Club, you can visit www.optv.org/kidsclub to learn more.

And, on the days the weather simply won’t allow for venturing out, I hope you enjoy all the moments of entertainment and inspiration we have lined up for you this month on OPT. We’ll sit front row at the Metropolitan Opera for “Marnie” on Great Performances and journey up the slopes of active volcanoes on NATURE. I’m always grateful when OPT turns an evening at home into an adventure – and especially grateful for the member support that makes those adventures possible. Thank you.
