INFINITY Bingo

Who doesn’t like Bingo? We all know that sense of accomplishment when you get to yell “BINGO!” Younger students can work as a team with their Chaperone and older students can complete INFINITY Bingo on their own.

In order to complete INFINITY Bingo, students will need to visit each part of the science center.
