Get Down and Dirty at Port Discover’s Afterschool Science, Thursday, November 18

Elizabeth City, NC — Port Discover’s Afterschool Science invites kids to get Down & Dirty, Thursday, November 18, from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm. Get ready to get all the dirt…on dirt! Children will learn where dirt comes from, what makes dirt, and how it affects our everyday life. Dig in a soil pit, play in mud, learn to compost, and plant a plant to take home for a winter garden. Join us for a messy day of fun!

Afterschool Science is Port Discover’s new free, interactive science program featuring a different and timely topic each month. This afterschool science program made possible thanks to support from the City of Elizabeth City. No reservations are necessary.

Port Discover is located at 611 East Main Street, Elizabeth City. Port Discover’s hours are Tuesday through Friday from 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm and Saturday from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. Programs can be arranged at other times for special groups. For more information, call 252-338-6117 or

Port Discover is a community-based, non-profit organization, established to enhance the public’s understanding and enjoyment of science through engaging programs, activities, and exhibits.
