Cranbrook Institute of Science

Monster myths, cockroach races, medieval-style warfare and a haunted roller coaster in space are all part of the Institute’s 2010 Halloween Science event on Oct. 23. For better flexibility in planning their evening of scary science, visitors select from one of two sessions of two hours each from 3-5pm or 6-8pm. The creepiest educational experience the Institute offers, this year’s event features Dr. Kelp debunking favorite myths and misconception about mummies, the wolfman, Dracula and the Creature from the Black Lagoon; science demo stations (liquid nitro, dry ice, hair raising Van de Graff, glowing rocks); Make and Take activities; a scavenger hunt; a special virtual roller coaster ride in the planetarium, trick or treating and much more! Throughout the evening visitors can enter the Bat Zone of delve into the ultimate in scary reality by wandering among the more than 60 dinosaurs in the World of Dinosaurs exhibit. Outside, the Institute’s three-ton trebuchet, a modern version of a medieval siege weapon, will hurl pumpkins and medicine balls into the air!
