Science gets spooky at the Saint Louis Science Center's annual Halloween party! Bring your little ghouls, goblins, astronauts and dinosaurs to this candy-free Halloween event featuring hands-on, spell-binding science. 

The whole family is encouraged to come in costume. (Visitors over the age of 12 are asked not to wear masks.) 

At Science Spooktacular, you'll discover that the things you thought were scary may not be that scary at all. Hands-on activities will help you unravel the unexpected and unknown through science.

The Science Spooktacular fun includes:

  • Make a cool Halloween project in the Makerspace.
  • Experience a chilling science demonstration at our Energy Stage, and learn about real, everyday monsters and why they play an important role in our ecosystem.
  • Unravel the unexpected and the unknown through science with surprise partners.
  • Enjoy mummy dogs or candy-corn pizza. Guest 21 and over can enjoy beer or wine at the Fermentation Station. 

October 24-27, 2019, from 5 to 8 p.m each night at the Saint Louis Science Center. General admission and parking are free.

And don't miss the Monster Flash Mob at the Saint Louis Science Center on October 24. Grab your monster costumes and bring your little monsters to the Saint Louis Science Center to participate in an awesome flash mob! You'll be dancing to Jump in the Line (Shake, Senora) and Monster Mash. Registration is from 5 to 6:15 p.m. at the registration desk. Afterwards, stick around for Science Spooktacular.
