Join our annual salute to all things that go BOOM with live demonstrations and hands-on activities.

Special activities (included with general admission):

  • Combustion science: Learn about the fire triangle with demonstrations that flash and kaboom!
  • Liquid nitrogen: What happens when you freeze a balloon filled with air to -321 degrees? How about when super cold liquid nitrogen warms up inside a container? Stop by to find out!
  • American Flag Spinners: Make your own spinning disk illusion, and learn how fast your eyes can be fooled.
  • UV/Energy bead bracelets
  • Bubble Snake Art: Create colorful, foamy bubbles, and take home a unique piece of art

Plus, stop by Cosmic Ray's on the second floor for a bonus Sci-Bites presentation on "Ballooney" science experiments! Demonstrations include: Launch a Balloon, Air Pressure, Chemical Reaction, Water and Bed of Nails.


Program subject to change. Please note, Adventure Science Center will close at 4 p.m. in observance of the 4th of July.
