Join us over Christmas Break for this fun and educational show for the whole family!
Thursday December 26th through Saturday January 4th
Two shows daily: 11:30 am and 1:30 pm
The High Desert Museum brings science to life in this captivating daily program during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
Can pickles conduct electricity? Who really invented the light bulb? How did Ben Franklin's experiment with a kite and key work? What was he trying to accomplish?
This year's Science Party will include entertaining historical answers and hair-raising experiments utilizing one of the great forces of nature - electricity.
In this 30-minute program you will see dramatic examples of the principles behind electricity and learn about conductors, circuites, generators and static electricity. We'll also introduce you to Ben Franklin and Thomas Edison. Did you know that Edison's company used over 50 years of data and knowledge to improve the "incandescent burners" of the day, effectively making a better light bulb?
Science Party is a tremendously popular program, so buy your tickets early!
Non-members $5 plus Museum admission.
