Take an adults-only field trip to the Science Center for Science Night Live


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.

8-11:30 p.m. Saturday, June 11 | Orlando Science Center, 777 E. Princeton St. | 407-514-2000 | osc.org | $15
