It’s shaping up to be an exciting October at the Greensboro Science Center! Not only are we celebrating our 60th anniversary, but we’ve also got a great fall festival and an eerie evening of spectacularly spooky sights and sounds planned!
Celebrating 60 Years of Science
During the entire month of October, we’ll be spotlighting some special memories from the past 60 years on our Facebook page, but we need YOUR help! Share an old photo, a special memory or a creative piece of art inspired by the Greensboro Science Center on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #GSC60. Not only will you be helping us to make strides on our journey down memory lane, but you’ll have a chance to win an awesome prize, too!
Thanks to our friends at The Fresh Market, we’ll be celebrating the greatest of gourds, the pumpkin, at Pumpkin Palooza on October 21 from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. The Fresh Market will once again be bringing tasty treats, giveaways, crafts and games for visitors – as well as plenty of pumpkins for our animals to enjoy as special enrichment items. Children are encouraged to come in costume (no masks, please).
Pumpkin Palooza activities are included with general admission to the Greensboro Science Center. General admission is $13.50 for adults ages 14 – 64, $12.50 for children ages 3 – 13, and $12.50 for seniors ages 65+. Children 2 and under as well as Greensboro Science Center members are free.
Frightful fun awaits at Fright Light, October’s evening laser show! Join us on Friday, October 27 at 7:00 p.m., 8:00 p.m. or 9:00 p.m. in our OmniSphere Theater for an amazing laser light show set to the sounds of the season. From Michael Jackson’s Thriller and Metallica’s Enter Sandman to Charlie Daniels Band’s Devil Went Down to Georgia and Boris Pickett’s Monster Mash, this show offer tunes perfect for an evening of family fun!
