Special to the Enterprise


It came from the skies. It contained a living being who is now missing. What else may have been lurking in this extraterrestrial craft?


Where did it come from? Why did it come to Earth? Is Davis under attack? Become a forensic investigator for a night and help answer these and many other questions at Explorit’s Spooky Science Night, a sci-fi adventure for all ages.


Featuring an all-new, immersive sci-fi mystery, Spooky Science is back to send a chill up your spine and add some science to your fall festivities. Federal agents investigating the crash of an alien spacecraft at Explorit need your help.


Test rocket fuel samples taken from the spaceship to find out how far it has traveled. Decode the encrypted message to discover why the space alien has traveled to our planet. Use chemistry to test the substance found in the space ship. Is it poison?


Investigate crash site photos and compare them to the scene as it looks now. Has someone been tampering with the investigation? Put your science knowledge to the test to unravel the mystery.


Join us on Saturday, October 21 and 28, 6:00-9:00 p.m. to follow the clues and solve an all-new sci-fi mystery. Girl Scouts can join us for a preview night on Friday, October 20, Boy Scouts on Friday, October 27.


The cost is $10/person (chaperones are free on scout nights). Tickets are available at the door the night of the event or in advance by calling 530-756-0191.
