The Youth Science Center in Hacienda Heights still has some room left on several field trips this summer.
The center will visit Research Tool and Die Works Manufacturing Plant in Carson on Thursday, Aug. 6, from 10 to 11 a.m. This is a behind-the-scenes tour of a manufacturer of marine electrical systems hardware. This facility houses some of the most advanced fabrication equipment available.
The center also will visit Bentley Prince Street Carpet Mill on Friday, Aug. 7, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Bentley Prince Street operates a large carpet-making facility in Industry. The group will see the entire carpet-making process, from graphic design to the giant mill equipment.
The tours are free for members, $3 per family for nonmembers. Interested families must register for the field trips at youthsciencecenter.org.
