Grab your spurs and journey to the Wild West on an action-packed adventure to foil a great bank robbery. Runaway trains, escapes from abandoned mines, and a mysterious piano are all part of this rollicking combination of storytelling and science. Volunteers from the audience will help explore the fascinating science behind chemical reactions, combustion, air pressure, inertia, and more. You won’t want to miss this interactive, hilarious, and educational show! No registration is required.
Whatzit? Is an entertaining and hands-on program that allows participants to expand critical thinking skills through an artifact identification program.
