Ice Age Animals At Carnegie Science Center In Pittsburgh

Ice Age Animals. Carnegie Science Center’s Ice Age Day encourages visitors to bundle up, learn about all things cold, and discover Titans of the Ice Age in Omnimax.

Ice Age Day programming will be held from 10 am – 5 pm on Saturday, Jan. 31.

Free with general admission to the Science Center, Ice Age Day offers cold-themed activities, including dry ice demonstrations. Visitors can compare their height to that of a woolly mammoth, among other hands-on science activities. A blubber glove experiment will encourage visitors to determine the most effective insulation and will explain first-hand how animals stay warm in frigid temperatures.

Courtesy of Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Ice Age animal touchables will be on hand, including mammoth, mastodon, and saber-toothed cat teeth, along with a cast of a mastodon foot.

The science show “Freeze!” will explore the chilling effects of super-cold liquid nitrogen on balloons, rubber balls, and batteries. This ever-popular set of live demonstrations explains what happens when things get really cold.

For a few dollars more, visitors can watch the newest film on the biggest screen in Pittsburgh – Titans of the Ice Age, which opened today. Children are encouraged to write a review of the movie, which will be posted at the Science Center.

Titans of the Ice Age, sponsored locally by Pennsylvania Virtual Charter School, transports viewers to the beautiful and otherworldly frozen landscapes of North America, Europe, and Asia 10,000 years before modern civilization. Dazzling computer-generated imagery brings this mysterious era to life. Titans reveals the world of saber-toothed cats and giant sloths to the iconic mammoths, giants both feared and hunted by prehistoric humans: an ancient world of ice, the dawn of our ancestors, a time when humans fought for survival alongside majestic woolly beasts.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
