Make it in May - Science Center 21+ Night

The Science Center is partnering with TechShop to celebrate the science of making.  Witness making in its many forms, as TechShop members exhibit everything from giant bubble machines to sacred geometry jewelry!

Walk through each level of making and learn more about the wellspring of innovation, creating new products and value in our city.  Sparks will fly in the Works Theater as they fire up the foundry to cast aluminum, and get a chance to watch TechShop demonstrate an oxy-acetylene torch.

Here's my favorite reason to get excited: there will be cooking with chemistry in the Kitchen Theater - presenters are going to make liquid nitrogen ice cream for us to sample!

Plus you can participate in hands-on workshops for an added charge.

Making LED Light kits (Soldering & Electronics)

$25 - 3rd Floor Overlook

Come learn how to solder with TechShop's Persistence of Vision Kit.  You will create a cool LED light kit that will magically write words when you wave it in the air!  This POV kit "tricks" your eyes into seeing a full image when only part of the image is visible at one time.  Impress your friends with your new electronics skills!

Making T-Shirts (Silkscreening)

$25 - 4th Floor Overlook

Come hang out with CommonWealth Press and see the tricks of the trade.  You'll learn the art of screen printing by making your own Science Center/TechShop 21+ Night t-shirt with the help of the awesome guys and gals from CommonWealth Press.

Buy a drink from the bar, enjoy live music, and check out other maker related activities on all floors.

Be sure to purchase your ticket early!  For the special event price of just $10 if purchased by noon the day of the event ($15 if purchased later), we will have access to all four floors of exhibits, including SpacePlace, SeaScape, roboworld™, the Earthquake Café, the weather station, and scientific demos.
