  3. Human Physiology Experiments
  4. Make your own Snot
  5. Science of Diaper Goo
  6. Blood Typing

Come if you dare. Be prepared to be GROSSED OUT!

Includes the new exhibit CurioCity, Planetarium, Science Live show, Science Activity Tables and fun filled evening exploring the Science Museum.

Who can attend?
Everyone! The science museum program is perfect for 8-12 year old youth, but every age seems to enjoy the evening. Since this is a non-competitive event, feel free to bring younger or older youth, brothers, sisters, cousins, even those really big kids (parents and chaperones) to enjoy an evening filled with science and fun. Families are always welcome to participate.

Each county/club/family group is responsible for the youth that attend with them. We do not provide chaperones.
