Discovery Station, at 101 W. Washington St. in Hagerstown, will hold its first corporate open house for business and community leaders on Wednesday from 5 to 7 p.m.

The announcement was made by Chairman of the Board and Discovery Station Executive Director B. Marie Byers.

"We're excited to be hosting this first-ever corporate open house at Discovery Station. This gives business and community leaders the chance to learn about the hands-on science center, and the company benefits and corporate opportunities," she said.

Byers said the event also will offer a "special sneak peek at the latest and newest exhibits at Discovery Station."

The catered open house is an invitation-only event.

Volunteer staff and board members will be on hand to meet and greet attendees, and mingle throughout the spacious downtown Hagerstown museum.

According to Discovery Station Board-Member Bill McGovern, "Companies can join Discovery Station and have a large number of benefits. These include admission and gift shop discounts, free-use of event space and employee-recognition opportunities. Corporate memberships are being taken advantage by a number of local businesses."


Discovery Station at Hagerstown creates hands-on learning experiences that can stimulate a curiosity for discovery, exploration and further investigation by children and adults to foster lifelong learning. The programs and interactive exhibits on science, technology and history are unique educational resources available to all visitors.

Since opening in May 2005, Discovery Station at Hagers-town has been welcomed by the community. Its diverse visitors exemplify the fact that the interactive museum serves people of all ages and interests.
