Science With A Twist: DC Vs. Marvel
Friday, April 20
6 to 10 p.m.

Ka-pow! Zap! Boom! Pledge your allegiance, don your costume, and get super-powered at this month’s Science With a Twist. Try an Uncle Ben or other comic-inspired cocktail, catch a Metallica laser show and dance the night away with your sidekick. See Pompeii’s maybe most villainous Roman emperor, Caligula, in our blockbuster POMPEII: THE EXHIBITION. Dress as your favorite Superhero or Supervillain (comic book t-shirts are so basic). Enjoy an evening of undisciplined fun with other comic-book, movie and science fiction fans, 21 and over, of course. Which comic universe will win?

Science With A Twist: Trek, Wars and Who
Friday, May 4
6 to 10 p.m.

May the 4th be with us, as we go to a galaxy far far way at this Science With A Twist happening on May’s First Friday. Grab a “Make It So” Margarita or Sonic Screwdriver at the Space Cantina, and catch the Grand Tour of the Empire in the Dorrance Planetarium. The Doctor and Donna visited Pompeii in AD 79, on the eve of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Hook up with that Wookie you eyed last Science With A Twist and experience POMPEII: THE EXHIBITION before it leaves at the end of the month. Dress up as your favorite Vulcan, Silurian or Jawa and compete in the Jedi Quest Costume Contest. Allons-y!
