Join us for Spooky Science Night

Special to the Enterprise

 

 

Explorit’s annual Spooky Science Night is only one week away!  Join us on Saturday, October 26 from 5:00-9:00pm as we add a spooky flair to our existing exhibit.

 

At Spooky Science Night, visitors can experiment with our Light & Sound activities which include color mixing on a light table, singing into an oscilloscope, manipulate light, reflect lasers, and view objects under a black light.  We will also have a space with activities about spiders, such as putting eyes on a spider model and making your own web!

 

Visitors can also have a hair-raising experience while interacting with a Van de Graff generator, which creates static electricity.  Place your hands on a plasma ball and watch the electricity move with you.  Guests can also try their luck in navigating a laser maze in our West Wing classroom!

 

Take a look at a variety of preserved heart and lungs to see what makes us “tick” on the inside.  Or don a pair of gloves and take a look at a fresh set of sheep lungs, heart, and trachea.  In addition to those creepy activities, visitors can also assemble skeletons and match skulls.

 

Get up close to some of our spookier resident animals.  Animal encounters of our snakes, tarantula, scorpion, or cockroaches will happen periodically.  Learn about and meet these animals, and maybe they will not be so spooky afterwards.

 

All are welcome to this one-night event.  Admission is $7 for general public, $6 for Explorit Members.  Anyone who comes in a family appropriate costume will receive $1 off admission price.  We hope to see you on Saturday, October 26 for a fun night of Spooky Science, from 5:00-9:00pm.
