Way Late Play Date (21+)

PIXAR

Thursday, October 5  |  6:30 to 10 p.m.

From the first time we saw Sheriff Woody save his town from "One Eyed Bart" to our second journey across the ocean with Dory, Marlin and Nemo, Pixar films have captivated audiences of all ages with their incredible animations, relevant (and somtimes hard-hitting) stories, and beautiful scores. But where's the science? At this Way Late Play Date, we'll go to infinity... and beyond to show you some awesome science inspired by these films. Stay tuned for more information, and remember... adventure is out there!

Tickets are $35 for not-yet-members and $25 for members and include admission to all exhibits and activities, three beverage tickets (beer, wine and soft drinks), a planetarium show and a souvenir cup.

Tired of playing nice?

Visit Sid’s backyard and hack into some toys, creating new mutant playthings. You don’t have to worry about Woody teaching you a lesson, because in this toy story, the toys aren’t alive… right?

Grab your Adventure Book...

… and set a course for Paradise Falls! In this fun engineering challenge, you’ll tie on a fleet of colorful balloons to get things moving UP.

FLIK'S COLONY

Shoo, fly, don't bother me!

You won't be saying that with this activity! Learn all you can about a bug’s life with real live bugs, a bug dissection, and... sweet treats?! Instead of giving Hopper food, let's make some food out of Hopper.

NEMO'S REEF

Fun isn't hard to find in Nemo's colorful reef!

Explore the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef while getting hands-on with The Aquarium Restaurant’s live touch tank and seeing some actual ocean artifacts.

A lone WALL-E robot trash compactor continued to roam the planet after the humans evacuated and all other robots stopped functioning, but he’s not alone now. Middle Tennessee Robotic Arts Society (MTRAS) will showcase their model WALL-E along with other amazing robotic creations.
