Spooktacular Science at Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium

October 29, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$4 – $8

The beakers are bubbling again for the annual Spooktacular Science event at the Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium.

Participate in frightfully fun activities from UA student science groups, such as: slippery slime, liquid nitrogen, arts and crafts, and Halloween Treats & Trinkets! Student groups offering activities include: Neuroscience, Chemistry, Hydrology, Solar Cats, and the CATalyst STEM outreach club.

There will also be a Halloween laser music show – “Fright Lights” – in the cool comfort of the Eos Planetarium Theater. You’ll shiver to the sounds of your favorite spooky songs like Thriller, Monster Mash, and Purple People Eater as dazzling laser images dance on the planetarium done.

When you visit, you can also see one of the amazing fulldome planetarium shows like “Perfect Little Planet” or “We Are Stars.” These fun, informative shows are perfect for families.

The Spooktacular festivities will take place on Sunday, October 29, from 12noon until 5pm.
