The “Under Cover of Darkness” theme is all about planets, black holes, constellations, wobbly stars and lunar craters.
When does science get spooktacular? To find out, climb into your costume and head on over to the Bradbury Science Museum for “High-Tech Halloween.” Back for its 16th year, the creepy educational event is from 4-7 p.m. today.
Long-time staffers call High-Tech Halloween the museum’s largest single-day draw. “We expect about 2,000 visitors to come through in three hours,” said Museum Science Educator Liz Martineau. “Kids and adults all love it.”
More than a dozen ghoulish activities, all related to this year’s theme, “Under Cover of Darkness,” are sure to delight big and small. Visitors can learn why stars wobble; discover how lunar craters are caused; learn about planets, black holes, and constellations; and dare to guess which of several rocks is a real meteorite. Science educator and chef-for-the-night Gordon McDonough will “cook a comet” using liquid nitrogen, and lab scientists will explain the secrets of astrophysics. In addition, volunteers — lab employees, students from Los Alamos High School National Honor Society, and others — will be on hand to show guests a bone-chillingly good time.
