An extraterrestrial craft has crash landed at Explorit Science Center and the occupant is missing. “ CSI  Yolo”  needs your help to solve the mystery at Explorit’s Spooky Science Night, coming this October.


Do the space aliens come in peace or are we under attack? Where did this UFO come from? And where is the alien now?


Tour the crash site to collect evidence. Enter the lab and use science to analyze the clues. Then solve the mystery to win a prize and save Explorit from a space alien invasion.


Become a forensic investigator for a night to help discover the truth about this visitor from another world. Test chemical solutions, analyze fingerprints, decode hidden messages and more.


But wait! Has somone tampered with the crash site. Study the photos and see if you can spot the differences. Test the UFO’s rocket fuel to see how far it has traveled. Could the alien be radioactive? Sample some DNA to find out.
