The worst part about the Orlando Science Center is that they allow children inside. Thankfully, this night they aren't. Science Night Live is reserved for science-loving grown-ups who want to observe and mingle among other nerds. This event, combining the social and the science, gives geeks a chance to try a variation of hands-on experiments and challenges in multiple exhibits, like the "mindbender mansion" and "kinetic zone"; compete in science trivia; view out of this world sights through a giant telescope in the observatory; and take in PechaKucha presentations where speakers keep things concise: just 20 slides and just 20 seconds per slide. The Dr. Phillips CineDome will even be playing two films. On the other hand, if things get a little too academic, just find where the food and alcohol are sold.
