My kids have been obsessed with oobleck, a non-Newtonian fluid that has properties of both liquids and solids, ever since this day at the Fleet Science Center two years ago…
They’ve made oobleck at home many times, but they will finally get to walk on it once again at this weekend’s Impossible Science Festival.
For the 3rd year, the Fleet Science Center is hosting its hands-on event where kids can learn how to make objects invisible, experience what it’s like to walk on water and explore levitation. There are more than 20 interactive demonstration stations for families to experience.
“The goal of the Impossible Science Festival is to promote education through curiosity,” said Jason Latimer, host and designer of the Impossible Science Festival. “By exploring subjects that seem impossible but showing how they can be made possible through science, visitors will have a memorable, hands-on learning experience that will blow their minds!”
It’s no secret that we love the Fleet Science Center, but the Impossible Science Festival is just about the best time we’ve ever had there.
And it is amazing that all of the festival fun is included in Fleet admission along with other exhibits like Game Masters, Dream! Design! Build, all of the Fleet’s interactive exhibits, plus one IMAX film of your choice.
The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday in the theater lobby of the Fleet Science Center. Ticket prices range from $19.95 for juniors to $22.95 for adults and includes the festival, Fleet exhibits and one film in the IMAX giant dome theater. Members and Explorer Pass holders enter for free.
One lucky reader will win a family 4-pack of admissions to the Impossible Science Festival. For your chance, leave us a comment below answering the question, “Do you let your kids create their own science experiments in your house?” (man they can be messy, which is why it’s great so many can be done at this festival!)
One reader will be selected to win this Thursday.
