GLOW at the Science Museum of Virginia

GlowImageLight it up at the Science Museum of Virginia during Science After Dark: Glow!

SMV has a pretty spectacular evening planned for their Science After Dark series!
Fire dancers will light up the way to the museum on October 17.  Inside, kids and adults can get hands on and discover the wonders of luminescence and phosphorescence.

If you haven’t been to this event yet, it’s a blast and definitely worth the trip out for a night of glow-in-the-dark fun with crafts, games and experiments.

Families can go blacklight bowling, taste a glowing drink, watch black light dancers perform, discover how Non-Newtonian fluid reacts on a subwoofer and, children of the 70s and 80s get ready, play with a giant Lite-Brite.  The Science Museum of Virginia is packing the evening full of luminescent activities for everyone to enjoy.

Take a trip to the most spectacular light show of all in The Dome theater with a special 6:30 pm astronomy presentation, The Glow of the Universe before heading outside to stargaze with the Richmond Astronomical Society, or get glowing with Mentos geyser eruptions, jewelry-making, music and more.

SMV will also host special screening of the classic film, Tron, at 8 pm in The Dome.

Science After Dark is a monthly evening event held on the third Friday of the month at the Science Museum of Virginia. The next Science After Dark will be held on Friday, December 19.
