It’s social, it’s science, and it’s for grown-ups only! On Saturday, December 12 from 8-11pm, the Orlando Science Center will present a craft beer edition of Science Night Live, featuring craft beer samplings, short seminars and “exbeeriments” that will forever change your perceptions of beer’s place at the dinner table.

Science Night Live has everything you love about the Orlando Science Center but with the added bonus of special programming geared toward adults. This event is part of Orlando Science Center’s year-long 60th anniversary celebration and offers visitors the opportunity to hear live presentations, stargaze in the Crosby Observatory (weather-permitting), partake in bar-style science trivia, conduct lab experiments in Dr. Dare’s Lab, explore hands-on exhibits and so much more! All of these experiences are included in the ticket.

Get Inspired
Hear special guest speaker Curt Bowen, renowned explorer, master photographer and expert diver, and CEO and founder of Advanced Diver Magazine. During his presentation, “Recovering Ancient Relics,” Bowen will take you deep into the forbidden realms of the ancient Mayan Indians to share a hidden world protected by Xibalba, the God of the underground.
