Treat the kids to a tree house adventure with the four ‘ultimate cool green tree houses’ built along the nature trails at the Roper Mountain Science Center. The kids will surely love the experience!
Roper Mountain Science Center, a center for studying life, space, natural and physical sciences in Greenville, recently held a tree house design competition. Architects, builders, and contractors were ask to submit tree house designs that have an eye to science and entertainment as well as utilizing ‘green’ materials. The four winning designs were then built in one of the wooded sites at the Science Center.
What to expect from these tree houses? Fun, fun, and fun! Not to mention, educational too! “The idea was to have an interesting interactive outdoor attraction for students to use during the week, that would also be attractive to the public and useful for teaching science,” said development director Tommie Reece.
The four tree houses are built uniquely and creatively. Each tree house has elements that show scientific principles making the experience fun and educational. Visitors can even vote for their favorite tree house. The center announced that the tree houses will be officially opened on July 12, Saturday. Admission is free!
