Science on the Rocks

On October 24th we are having our Science on the Rocks event. This is an after-hours event where visitors can solve the Mystery of the Mayan Medallion while participating in beer and wine tasting. Volunteers need to be 18 or older to help with this event. We would need help from 5:30 until 9:00 pm that night! To get more information about the event or helping out, contact the volunteer coordinator listed below!

First Friday Events

Every first Friday of the month we have an after-hours event that is free to the public. Each month is a new theme with different stations! Volunteers would arrive at 3:45 p.m. for a short orientation, and then help run these exciting stations. The First Friday events are form 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. and are fun for all ages, even the adults! For more information contact the volunteer coordinator listed below!
