Explorit: Spooky science fundraiser at museum

By
From page A4 | October 18, 2013 |

When darkness falls, the Explorit lab will come alive for a hair-raising fundraiser for the whole family, Spooky Science Nights, on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 25-26, and Halloween night.

Discover what lurks beneath the surface by testing different slimes in the Goo Room. Experience the thrills and chills of chemistry as you experiment with states of matter. Or venture into the Wacky Workshop for an electrifying good time. Charge up a storm and experience indoor lightning, just don’t get zapped. It’s shocking good fun!

Pay a visit to the inhabitants of the Kingdom of the Spider — if you dare! They’re creepy, they’re crawly and they’re here just to meet you.

Or for a spine-tingling thrill, explore some of what the dead leave behind. You just may be surprised at what you find! Finally, escape to the Challenge Center to tackle a creepy construction challenge; you get to keep whatever you make.

Halloween night will feature additional fun including trick-or-treating and a costume contest, complete with prizes. If you’ve been looking to inject a little science into your seasonal festivities, you won’t want to miss Spooky Science Nights.

Tickets are $7 per person. Children 2 and under are free; all children must be accompanied by an adult. This family-friendly event is appropriate for all ages.

All events will take place at Explorit Science Center, 3141 Fifth St. in Davis, on Friday, Oct. 25, from 7 to 10 p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 26, from 6 to 9 p.m.; and Halloween, Thursday, Oct. 31, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tickets are available at www.explorit.org/csp/spooky or by calling Explorit’s office at 530-756-0191.

Or if you’d like to volunteer to help with this event or lend decorations or carved pumpkins for display, email [email protected] or call Lisa at 530-756-0191. We’re just dying for a few good helping hands.

Support Explorit’s mission to continue providing science experiences for all by having a ghoulish good time with the whole family this Halloween at Explorit’s Spooky Science Nights!
