Our second ever Sip & Science was held February 9th to a sold out crowd. Good times, drinks, and plenty of pizza were had by all to celebrate National Pizza Day in the museum.
Sip & Science gives adults age 21 and up a chance to enjoy the museum after hours and play like a kid again. At this event, guests were building their own Rube Goldberg machines to compete for some sweet prizes like two free tickets to our 30th Anniversary event. All made were equally hilarious contraptions, so this was a hard event to judge at the end of the night!
With amazing pizza from Wiley's Pizzeria and plenty of beer and wine to go around, fun was the number one priority of the night. Our animals even got in on the action, too.
Cici, our animal ambassador, made loads of friends and admirers throughout the evening. Our bearded dragons, sugar gliders, red-tailed boa constrictor, and several other critters also came out to party with our guests and give them a chance to have an up-close encounter while learning more about the animals that call the center home. After all, who doesn't want a selfie with a hedgehog? We aim to help you live your best life on Instagram with tons of photo opportunities at Sip & Science.
Along with making majorly awesome Lego mosaic art, testing out our robotics, and playing in our giant bubble exhibit, guests had the run of the museum for the evening. Trivia games got pretty intense in SMALLab, our room-sized, interactive iPad (don't get us started on Marvel vs. DC), but a little rivalry sparked a ton of laughs throughout the night. Our pals from 30A Barks even stopped by so everyone could bring some yummy treats home to their four-legged pals at the end of the evening.
We are already gearing up for our next Sip & Science event in May. Stay tuned to our calendar of events for more information--you don't want to miss what we have planned for the next adult night out at the museum!
