DARK MATTERS is an 18+ event, where the science is served on the rocks & the adults come out to play

Thursday, March 9, 2017
7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Ever wanted to launch a chicken from a sling-shot? We're testing the limits of gravity, at this 'Projectiles' themed event...

Highlights include: 

  • Four words: Nerf gun shooting range. This means war... 
  • Anyone ever seen an "atlatl" or know how to use one? You won't want to miss this particular game of show & tell. 
  • Nothing says 'projectile' like rockets. So naturally, we'll be launching some. 
  • Of course, meteorites certainly hold claim to 'projectile' fame, too. We've got real meteorites that you'll wanna check out!   
  • Embark on journeys across the universe, with pint-sized planetarium shows in the Margaret Zeidler Star Theatre. 
  • It's not a true DARK MATTERS party until someone whips up the Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream. 
  • & so much more! 

And as always:

  • DJ Thomas Culture 
  • Bar & Purple Pear Restaurant
  • Exclusive access to all of our permanent galleries, and; 
  • Grown-up science experiments!
