BoldPas at the Armory: ¡Descubra!
Dates: Saturday, Jun 8, 2019
Time: 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Discover art, science, and technology with the Smithsonian Latino Center and the Armory during BoldPas: A Day of Art & Play in Old Pasadena. For this year’s BoldPas, the Armory is pleased to host ¡Descubra! — a program created by The Smithsonian Latino Center as a fun way to inspire the next generation of science citizens—as well as history and culture enthusiasts—by showcasing the contributions of Latinos to STEAM-H fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Art, and History). This fun filled day of free activities is perfect for families and visitors of all ages.
