The Cradle of Aviation Museum's annual Family Science Nights return with the beloved “Spooky Science Night” with two socially-distant and safe, limited attendee, family sessions. Each session is packed with stimulating family-fun, STEM activities, and a Halloween parade to entertain the entire family. All activities are included with admission. All tickets must be purchased in advance, no tickets will be sold at the door. Ideal for kids in grades K-5. Activities include: Frankenstein Hands: Use your mad scientist skills to dissect frozen hands to discover what is trapped inside. Candy Catapults: Protecting your Halloween hoard is serious business. Construct and test your own catapults. Boo-Be-Gones: You ain’t afraid of no ghosts! Learn how to keep ghosts away with some homemade ghost repellant. Predicting the Future: Do you have a sixth sense? See if you can predict the future by studying what comes before it! Kepler Planet Hunt: There are thousands of exoplanets in our galaxy and some have gotten lost in our museum. Can you shed some light on their location?
