Spooky Science is this Saturday at the Maryland Science Center

Celebrate the chills and thrills of Halloween at our third annual Spooky Science (Oct. 29), where creepy chemistry and mysterious science combine to provide a hauntingly good time. Our mad scientists will be roaming through the building with hair-raising experiments and fang-tastic demonstrations. There will be glowing slime, mask and pumpkin decorating and a punkin’ chunkin’ contest. Wear your costume to make it a truly spooktacular day.

Be sure to catch a carving demonstration from the Pumpkin Wizard, Brad Miller. Brad has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Woman’s Day, In-Style Magazine, Men’s Health, Kiplinger’s, many online publications, and numerous radio and television spots. In 2001, Brad was asked to carve all five of the co-hosts of ABC’s “The View”. He has also carved a portrait for Senator John Edwards’ campaign in 2004 and a series of portraits for the 83rd Birthday Bash of the Grand Ole Opry in 2008. The artist will be carving during the event and performing live demonstrations at 12:30, 2:00 & 3:30pm.

Don’t miss live presentations by the mad scientists of the MSC on our demonstration stage at 1:20pm and 3:20pm where you can learn all about the experimental history of the famous Dr. Frankenstein, who first started testing on pumpkins before creating his infamous monster.

All activities are free with paid admission and free for members.
