Discovery Science Center: The {Science} of Ripley's and {Spooky} Science

Disclosure: We were invited to a media preview of the events. This is not a sponsored post.

Two new SPOOKY exhibits have moved into the Discovery Science Center for
the month of October - Spooky Science and the Science of Ripley's.
There is so much spooky science fun to explore, you won't want to miss it!
You can explore a 3-D maze, investigate screaming balloons, get REALLY close to
real life spiders (including a BLACK WIDOW!), and practice your werewolf howls at
the "phases of the moon" station.
My kids also enjoyed the live stage show "The Wizard of Ooze" - included in Spooky Science - 
where they learned about "screaming balloons", "gooey slime", and "elephant's toothpaste".
They loved the opportunity to make their own slime and decorate pumpkins.

I was so excited to check out The Science of Ripley's, since I have loved Ripley's
Believe it or Not since I was JT's age. I was always fascinated with the weird and the wacky.
This hands-on exhibit allows guests to try experiments, challenges, and interactive multimedia
experiences that kids of all ages will enjoy discovering Ripley's extraordinary findings.

You won't want to miss the amazing special events happening on weekends during October!
October 19 & 20: This special weekend highlights our six and eight-legged friends through shows and activities that will have you itching all the way home.  Guests will explore Dr. Sue’s Insect Zoo, learning about bugs, their habitats, and food sources. Guests can touch the insects with their hands, or just sit back and watch them do their creepy-crawly thing.

October 26 & 27: Get into the Halloween spirit with this special weekend festival filled with pumpkins and Jack-O-Lanterns. Guests can check out a special display of expertly designed Jack-O-Lanterns and see a giant pumpkin from Tanaka Farms!
