During this “Trick or Treat” season, the focus is generally on the “Treats”. At ScienceWorks, we give you a chance to explore some of the “Tricks.” Come try your hand at making some amazing science “tricks” and illusions, and learn about the science behind them. This fun, family friendly event will get you ready to share the tricks you learn this Halloween.
Spooky Science is free with admission and is perfect for all ages!
