Live Science Experience Essentials

  • Ages:
  • This live science experience is suitable for all ages.
  • Duration:
  • 30 minutes

Get ready to party as we experiment with liquid nitrogen to celebrate a scientist’s birthday. We'll decorate, play music, and whip up some tasty treats all with the help of super cold liquid nitrogen. Party on as the most abundant element in the atmosphere reacts with its environment under extreme conditions. This birthday party is so “cool,” it’s freezing!

There is no charge for this program, which is offered in the Science Storms North Lab located within the Science Storms exhibit on Balcony Level 3. Seating is limited, so come early to this party!


Daily at 2 p.m.

For up-to-date information, please see the schedule at the Information Desk on Main Level 2. Please note that the schedule is subject to change.
