One of my favorite places to go to with my family is Discovery Place in uptown Charlotte, NC. However, when I am there with my children I never really get a chance to fully enjoy all the cool exhibits because I am so busy making sure they are enjoying themselves. But guess what? It is time for some mommy and daddy fun!
Discovery Place is launching their first “Science on the Rocks” shakes up Charlotte with Science, Cocktails and after work fun! This is an Adult-Only after hours event Friday, July 18th from 5-9pm. This is a great way to have a date night or enjoy a fun evening with friends and be a big kid at Discovery Place. Check out heir newest exhibit Alien Worlds and Androids and get your babysitter booked!
Science on the Rocks blasts off with an out of this world party featuring Alien Worlds and Androids. Geek out in this new exhibition which features Hollywood replicas of famous aliens and androids like Iron Man, C-3PO from Star Wars, T-800 from Terminator and the extraterrestrial from Alien. Then, grab a Nerf gun for a Museum-wide Nerf battle, targeting alien invaders in a carnival-style shootout. Play ‘Angry Birds in Space’ on a giant touch screen or dive into a virtual reality adventure with Oculus Rift. You can even create your own alien in our Think It Up challenge.
But what’s a party without bar games? Challenge your friends to a game of Glow-in-the-Dark Giant Jenga in the black-light aquarium, or try your hand at Catapult Beer Pong. Be sure to stick around past 8:00 p.m. to sample liquid Nitrogen wine slushies while they last. And don’t forget to check out the gravity-defying aerial show from Caroline Calouche & Co. who will be performing solo works on silk, sling and trapeze, as well as sharing some secrets of how they fly with the apparatus.
Unlike fieldtrips from your childhood, Science on the Rocks transforms each floor with a cash bar and music from Channel 96.1, 96.9 The Kat and 106.5 The End. Don’t miss favorite Discovery Place experiences like lying on a bed of nails, jetting up in the Air Chair or exploring Charlotte’s only Rainforest.
