In early 2014, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs made a major off-season acquisition: bacon. Although the team's name is a reference to pig iron—used in the manufacturing of steel—bacon speaks a universal language. In addition to its many culinary uses and getting sprinkled at newlyweds, it can now be found in the lockers of IronPigs players, emblazoned on their hats, sizzling across their jerseys, and waving down their pant legs on certain game days. Such creative innovations speak to the IronPigs' culture, which is a mixture of fan-friendly fun off the field and winning baseball on the field. The formula certainly keeps the seats filled at Coca-Cola Park, which was chosen as "Ballpark of the Year" in 2008 by Ballpark Digest.

Facing down winds of up to 78 mph. Controlling a robotic dinosaur with the same hydraulic technology behind amusement park rides. Such experiences only skim the surface of the 100-plus attractions available in Da Vinci Science Center's 10,000-square-foot, two-story exhibit space. Here, other hands-on activities run the gamut from assembling models of carbon nanotubes to navigating a 72-foot tunnel in complete darkness or with the aid of a friendly firefly.

But exploring exhibits isn't the only way to interact with science at Da Vinci Science Center. For visitors of all ages, the center sponsors nearly three-dozen programs including Science on the Move, which brings experiments directly to schools and community centers. In addition, Da Vinci Science Center hosts several events throughout the year such as Ice Cream Wars, where participants create tasty treats using liquid nitrogen as a freezing agent.
