Gateway to Science in Bismarck is planning to open a new early childhood activity area.
The new area, called "Science First — For Early Learners," aims to expose children under age 5 to STEM — science, technology, engineering and math — concepts. New activities will be added regularly.
There will be a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony from 9 to 11 a.m. Friday at Gateway to Science, 1810 Schafer St. Regular admission rates will apply.
