Spooktacular Science Celebration

October 25, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 10:00 pm

spooktacular_2014_webbannerThe beakers are bubbling again for our annual Spooktacular Science weekend at the Flandrau Science Center.

We’ll have frightfully fun activities from UA student science groups like the Chemistry Club and the Neuroscience Club, including slippery slime, squid dissections, a brain zoo, chemistry magic, math mayhem, arts and crafts, and Halloween Treats & Trinkets! Plus every day will include at least one special Halloween music laser show in the Planetarium, included with general admission! This event is sure to deliver haunted holiday high jinks for the whole family.

Plus you can see one of the amazing new Flandrau FullDome shows in the planetarium theater. This new projection system covers the whole planetarium dome in high resolution imagery. You’ll feel like you’re orbiting the Earth and flying through space to visit the planets!

The festivities will take place on the weekend before Halloween (October 25 & 26) and then again on the Thursday night (family night!) before Halloween and on Halloween night itself (October 30 & 31)! Come in costume and get half-price admission.

For more information, directions, and parking info check out Flandrau.org. And remember, Flandrau is just one block from the Sun Link streetcar stop at 2nd Street/Cherry Avenue!
