Spooky Science & Chemistry Day
Saturday, Oct. 25  |  10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Do you love October as much as we do? Then come explore the oozing, bubbling, creepy side of science and chemistry! We will have some MAD science experiments that are guaranteed to amaze and excite all ages! Be sure to wear your Halloween costume (adults too) and enter our costume contest for a chance to win cool prizes! All activities included with general admission.

Spine-tingling Special Activities:

  • Oozing Pumpkins: Explore the chemistry behind the foaming ooze seeping from the face of our jack-o-lantern.
  • Slime: Explore polymers with this hands-on ooey, gooey mad science experiment.
  • Disappearing Ghost Eggs: It looks like an ordinary glass of water. But hiding just below the surface of the water is an amazing collection of Ghost Eggs - see if you can spot them!
  • Hand Print Station: Use a special paper to make spooky handprints.
  • The Science of Fear: At 1:30 p.m., visit with Jenni Blackford, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Vanderbilt University, and learn about how our bodies respond to fear, what makes us afraid and the psychological effects of fear.
  • Costume Contests: At 11:15 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., show us your best Halloween get-up for the chance to win cool prizes (adults too)!
