I’m sure at one point in our lives, we’ve all wondered what it would be like if we were stuck inside a museum after it’s closed. Science After Dark is a series put on by the Science Museum of Virginia that allows kids to learn and conduct experiments long after the doors to the museum have closed to the public.
This month’s event is titled-Wicked plants! From 5-8 pm, Friday February 20th, your kids will get a chance to learn about plants and plant growth. They will get a chance to build their own vegetable instruments and discover how sound waves affect seed germination. Around 6:30 pm, they will head to the dome (i.e. Virginia’s largest movie screen) for a Cosmic Expedition and a special showing of Little Shop of Horrors. Following the films, Grace Chapman, Director of Horticulture at the Lewis Ginter Botantical Gardens will give a presentation. The Richmond Astronomical Society will also be outside the museum stargazing and answering general questions.
Tickets are $5 or free with college ID.
