The Greensboro Science Center (GSC) will be hosting PokeMonday events on August 8, 15, and 22 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. During these events, GSC staff members will be activating Pokémon GO lures around its nine PokeStops for visitors to enjoy. The Center is also home to one Pokémon GO gym, where visitors are encouraged to train their Pokémon or battle for control.
On August 1, the GSC hosted its first PokeMonday event. Visitors of all ages came out to catch Pokémon while exploring the Center's animals and exhibits. Due to the positive response from the community, the Center has decided to make PokeMondays a weekly event through August 22.
A post on the Center's Facebook page from Facebook user Eric "PeeWee" Johnson says, "Awesome job today with the Pokemon Go take over event!!!!! Our family had a wonderful time and made a few new friends!"
Facebook user Kelly Garmon posted, "We enjoy going to the science center & this event was just some extra fun."
PokeMonday activities are included with general admission to GSC. General admission is $12.50 for adults ages 14-64, $11.50 for children ages 3-13, and $11.50 for seniors ages 65+. Children 2 and under and GSC Members are free.
Although no PokeStops are located in unauthorized areas, visitors are reminded to remain on marked paths in authorized areas only during these events. Visitors are also encouraged to be respectful of barriers and other people — and animals — as they play.
