Join us for one of the most popular no-kids nights of the year! 21+ Sci Fi is back to explore the science behind science fiction with hands-on activities and special shows.
Visitors will have the chance to snap a selfie with a Stormtrooper and other Star Wars character favorites courtesy of Garrison Carida, a chapter of the 501st Legion, and the Rebel Legion Star Wars costuming groups. Sci-fi fans can mingle with members of the Steel City Ghostbusters and take a picture in front of the Steel City Time Machine, a DeLorean made to look like the Back to the Future time machine.
Learn about Mars exploration through the lens of Orson Wells War of the Worlds in our show «Mars Madness.» Join in the fun with Foley Effects to recreate the chilling Halloween broadcast of War of the Worlds! Join the search for Martian life, in fact and fiction. Discover how robots are teaching us about the Red Planet, paving the way for Earthlings to «invade» Mars in the future.
Other activities include making «ectoplasm» slime to take home and exploring futuristic technology like 3D printing, which would have been considered science fiction just a few decades ago. Get a photo taken in front of our green screen to transport yourself into your favorite sci-fi universe. Make a hover craft that you can take home. Bring a few bits of a sci-fi tale — a tattooed astronaut, a moon made entirely of secrets, a space detective with nothing to lose — and Dr. Karl Smith will write you a short story on his typewriter that you'll get to keep! 10 Cent Stories
