Announcing a new Meetup for Nerd Fun - Boston!

When: January 2,[masked]:00 PM

Meetup Description: On Fridays, the Museum of Science is open until 9:00 pm. Care to hang out after work? After, we can head to The Cheesecake Factory at the CambridgeSide Galleria for dinner and drinks. Let's meet in the Food Court of the Museum of Science from 6:30 pm to 7:00 pm. Let's hope that it doesn't get rented out by another company this time around like last time. I want to see the Goosebumps exhibit, and it's leaving on 1/4/2009 Sunday.

Price: It's $19.00 for exhibit admission, but free admission for members. I go here so often with Nerd Fun, I purchased an annual membership for myself for $70.00. http://store.mos.org/?action=memb_buy ... I can definately see myself going to the Museum of Science four times in the next twelve months with the Nerd Fun group.

Where to Meet:

T.J. Maher will be herding Nerds in the food court across from the Museum Store. T.J. is 5 foot 7, with short brown hair, blue eyes, a "Hello My Name is T.J." nametag, and a red MEETUP sign attached to his black messenger bag. A red MEETUP table tent will be on a few tables where he is sitting.

"World's First Triceratops Sold At Auction Will Be Unveiled In Boston -- Museum of Science to open new exhibit, Colossal Fossil: Triceratops Cliff"

http://www.mos.org/visitor_info/museum_news/press_releases&d=2907

"BOSTON?The Museum of Science, Boston today announced that it will unveil an extremely rare dinosaur fossil for the first time to the public this fall - a skeleton of Triceratops horridus that was auctioned at Christie's in Paris this past spring. According to Christie's, the fossilized Triceratops skeleton is mostly complete, making it one of the world's rarest paleontological finds. There are currently only three other largely complete Triceratops fossils on public display in the world. To present the fossil, the Museum has developed a new exhibit, Colossal Fossil: Triceratops Cliff, which will open November 15, 2008. Named after the donor's grandfather, Triceratops Cliff is the fossilized remains of a real Triceratops who lived and died over 65 million years ago. The exhibit will allow visitors to imagine Cliff's life and death in the age of the dinosaurs, as they examine evidence found in this extraordinary fossil, including large scars on its massive, three-horned skull".

Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns & Mermaids

Goose Bumps! The Science of Fear

On exhibit through Sunday, January 04, 2009.

http://www.mos.org/exhibits_shows/current_exhibits&d=2669

"Curious about coulrophobia, pyrophobia, or aviophobia (the fear of clowns, fire, and flying)? Want to know why your adrenaline system kicks into overdrive when you are afraid, causing your breath to quicken, your heart to race, and the hairs on your skin to stand on end? Discover the answers and more at this traveling exhibit that arrives at the Museum just in time for Halloween. The world's first comprehensive exhibit about the universal emotion, Goose Bumps! The Science of Fear delivers excitement and fun (along with a few shivers) and provides an experiential and holistic view of fear science ? examining physiological, neurological, and sociological aspects of this often-misunderstood emotion. Engaging hands-on activities encourage visitors to experience fear in a safe and enjoyable environment, measure their responses, and think about what it means to them.

"Goose Bumps! The Science of Fear was developed by the California Science Center and supported, in part, by the Informal Science Education program of the National Science Foundation under grant ESI[masked]".
