Now, we want to celebrate May the 4th with you with a Family Star Wars day at Adventure Science Center. Scroll down for information on themed activities and programming and make your plan to join us!

Floor Activities

  • Jedi Training Course
    • "Complete your training you must." Yoda will supervise our trainees as they undergo their Jedi training. Guests will undergo several training exercises including keeping Darth Vader (a balloon) in the air with a lightsaber, staying on the High Ground in Mustafar, and pod racing through an obstacle course. Upon completing Jedi training, the new Jedis will receive a glowing crystal necklace.
  • Yoda Headbands
    • Visitors can make a headpiece that features the iconic Lannik ears.
  • Fizzy Death Star Experiments
    • Pick your own Death Star...then watch it explode. Explore what happens when baking soda mixes with vinegar in this fizzy acid-base reaction.
