Festive Family Friday is one of the ways SciWorks gives back to the community,” says Paul Kortenaar, SciWorks’ Executive Director. “We hope everyone will come out this year and engage with all of our interactive exhibits, holiday-themed science demonstrations and other special surprises we have in store.”

The evening’s fun includes:

  • Live holiday music
  • Science demonstrations and crafts
  • An instrument “Petting Zoo” and entertainment from the UNC School of the Arts Community Music School
  • Roaming special guests and photos with Santa Claus himself by Lloyd Aaron Photography
  • Holiday Planetarium Shows including the Mannheim Steamroller Laser Show and “The Alien Who Stole Christmas”
  • An “Animal Zone” in the Lecture Hall: Meet some of SciWorks’ animals, make an animal ornament and gather “magic” reindeer food for Rudolph’s big night. Families will also be able to “Adopt-an-Animal” as a holiday gift or in honor of someone you love.
  • Holiday Shopping: Memberships and merchandise in the SciShop will be 20% off, and there will be handmade holiday items and gifts for sale as well.

Families can purchase dinner at SciWorks from CiCi’s Pizza with a special family deal (large cheese or pepperoni pizza, four drinks and four brownies) for $12.

Admission for SciWorks during this event is only $1. Members attend for free!
