A free public science education center is officially open in Northwest Fresno. The Highway City Science Center is moving into a community center that has been closed for 5 years since deep Recession era budget cuts.
The center is moving into one of the most underserved areas of Fresno off highway 99 in an area known as Highway City.
It will host science programing for children and adults, such as a fully assembled whale skeleton and electrical workshop.
Manuel Hernandez with the Fresno Parks Department says the center is a huge boost to the area.
