Insights Science Center igniting imaginations again in Downtown El Paso


EL PASO — After being dark and dormant for two years the Insights Science Center at its new home in El Paso’s Segundo Barrio is again delighting children with amazing experiments such as a sparking tesla coil that glows in the dark. “We’re letting people know that we’re here and that we are surviving again, you know we are here. And that we are going to make it better than it was,” said Jerry Jaurrieta, Insights’ floor manager. Open to the public for a month now, the center is once again providing hands-on science education; a tradition now 35 years strong. Their former location, which was made especially for the museum was demolished to make room for Southwest University Park, home of the El Paso Chihuahuas, in downtown El Paso.
