12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Halloween is one of our favorite times of the year at the Collaboratory so we feel it’s only fitting to launch with a special Halloween event! All ages are welcome! Come join us anytime between noon and 3:00 for a sneak peek into the kinds of hands-on experiences that the Collaboratory will offer. Some of the highlights include:
- Explore Newton’s Third law and how to fuel a rocket by designing and launching mini ghost pop rockets
- Finally settle the debate about whether slime is a liquid or a solid as we make our own zombie snot (aka slime)
- Discover what causes objects to glow in the dark when we use a special polymer solution to make vampire veins
- See physics in motion as you decorate your own paper pumpkins in our homemade giant spin art machine
We’ll have Halloween snacks and treats to enjoy as well! Costumes are optional (although encouraged!) and prizes & gift cards will be awarded to winners in door prize drawings. The event will last from 12-3 but you’re welcome to join us for all or any part of the event. Register below and please feel free to reach out with any questions about this event or more generally about the Collaboratory. We can’t wait to meet you!
