Science After Dark: Troopers vs Trekkies

January 31, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Details

It’s a new year and we’re stirring the pot by hosting an event that addresses one of the greatest arguments of all time – an argument that has allies in every corner of the galaxy.  Whether you’re boldly going where no one has gone before or you’re already in a galaxy far, far away, you’ve probably heard the age-old debate about which of science fiction’s two biggest franchises is better.  Is it Star Wars?  Is it Star Trek?  Are we crazy for doing this?  Science After Dark is for ages 21 and up.  Tickets are $10 or free for members.  Here is what you can expect:

Shrinky Drinky Dinks
Perler Bead Pixel Art Fusion
Beam me Up and Light Saber Light Painting
Space Battleship Pong
Art Droids and Ships
Aliens in the animal world
Trekkie and Trooper Trivia
Impersonation Contests
Drunken Storm Trooper Shooting Gallery
Jedi Boffer Duels, High Ground vs. Low Ground, Balance Beam, Light Sabers vs. Phaser
Cardboard Costume Creations
Cryo Hovercrafts

About Science After Dark

Who says the Museum of Discovery is only for kids?!? Not the hundreds of 21-and-older science-and-fun lovers who attend Science After Dark each month. Because, science is fun … at any age! Science After Dark provides visitors the opportunity to have fun and learn about science in a unique setting. Museum educators pick a science-related topic and build an entertaining, interactive evening around it. You never know what will sprout, pop, fizzle, or glow. We invite you to discover the science of having fun. Museum partners are there to serve pizza, and a full bar from craft beer to wine to cocktails is available. And beyond the themed activities each month, Science After Dark admission ($10, free for members) includes access to all museum galleries and our 90-plus hands-on, interactive exhibits.
