Science Saturday: The Science of Video Games
This Science Saturday (Saturday, September 24 from 12 PM - 4 PM ), we will be all about the Science of Video Games. Look back at the development of console technology with our pop-up exhibition; look ahead at the future of video games with Virtual Reality demos; and learn more about the technology that makes it all work with our panel.
For kids, we will have an activity station set up (1-3pm) making Gameboy paper craft and binary bracelets!
At 1pm we will begin our VR Panel, featuring Finn Staber of Portalarium, and Autumn Taylor and Michael Daubert of Phaser Lock.
VR demos will be running on a first-come first-served basis.
We will also be holding a Pokemon Go competition and Pokemon Safari scavenger hunt- all with 3D printed prizes! Safari will run for the whole event. The Pokemon Go competition will open registration at 12pm and will begin at 3pm, ending in awards ceremony at 3:45pm.
For those who joined us for our past Pokemon events, bring along your team badge to get a special prize.
The Thinkery and Alienware with both be joining us with even more demos!
***Costumes and cosplay are welcome***
This event is FREE for TXMOST members, and included in the regular museum ticket price for nonmembers. While this talk is open to all ages, the scientific explanations may be of more interest to older children and adults.
Free weekly starparties!
Have you ever seen Saturn through a telescope? Or the Moon? This is your golden opportunity for an evening of family fun. Every Friday evening from 9 to 10 pm, we hold star parties in our parking lot. And they're totally free!
Of course, you can come an hour early and catch the last planetarium show to get a live presentation about our night sky. Of course the night sky in the planetarium is always picture-perfect, however the outside event is weather permitting.
Adopt a Dinosaur: we need your help!
Our TimeWalk exhibit is only a very small portion of what was donated to the museum. The whole collection includes full size dinosaurs, but in order to display these we will need your help!
We started a Go Fund me campaign so you can help, and every little bit helps!
