It was close to sundown and something not-so-scary was lurking in the dark. Under the roof of the Orlando Science Center, families saw spiderwebs on the walls, spiders hanging from the ceiling and candy stations around every corner. Kids screamed not with terror, but with joy for the Wall of Dare, face painting tables and the chance to get scabs and warts. Members started to freeze, as the trick-or-treaters were, for the most part, treated to fun only the Science Center could provide.
For this was Spooktacular - a night where members could enjoy science-themed Halloween activities from the safety of their favorite Science Center. Check out the photos from the ninth annual event!
The first-ever Member Monday was highlighted by the appearance of local mural artists Juli Simon and Kay Story. Juli and Kay painted a wall graphic in KidsTown and needed some help coloring it in! Thanks to the help of little artists, a meadow came to life from right inside the Orlando Science Center!
Check out these photos from the event.
Remember - Member Monday happens the second Monday of the month!
It's been a week since about 200 members enjoyed a rockin' performance from local singer and songwriter Mr. Richard. As is his custom, he provided an awesome time for the little ones as they boogied to positive and upbeat music. Watch the video below and see how much fun was had! For photos, click here.
The one and only Mr. Richard performed during a members-only breakfast at the Orlando Science Center. About 200 people enjoyed coffee and bagels as the ever-popular musician played the kiddos' favorite hits. The capacity crowd clapped, stomped and bopped to songs like "Woo Woo Truck," "Butterfly Day" and "Pooch Smooch."
Check out the photos below to see the mommies, daddies and little buckaroos enjoying a musical set that only Mr. Richard can deliver!
