Science fun part of Halloween events
Destined to be Sci-Quest's signature event, "Spooktacular Science" is a month-long celebration of science with a Halloween twist.
Each weekend in October, Sci-Quest will offer Halloween-themed programs and activities for children of all ages.
Public activities for Spooktacular Science will be held each Saturday in October from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and each Sunday in October from 1:30-4:30 p.m.
Theme activities for the remainder of the month include last weekend Sweet Science on Oct. 11 and 12. On these dates, visitors can treat themselves as they discover candy bar density, bubble gum mass and how to make their own soda. Other activities for the month include Dem Bones on Oct. 18 and 19, and Mummies and Masks on Oct. 25 and 26.
The culmination of the month-long Spooktacular Science event is a family-friendly Halloween Party on Friday, Oct. 31, from 6-9 p.m., featuring games, activities, tricks and treats.
Rounding out the evening is a costume contest where creativity and ingenuity not only count, they're a requirement. The price for the Halloween Party is $5 per person. A complete list of Spooktacular Science activities is available at www.sci-quest.org.
