New to the event, Powered by PechaKucha presented by PechaKucha Orlando is making its first appearance at the Science Center. Plus, three new exhibits will be open for guests to enjoy including the new permanent exhibit Kinetic Zone, the latest traveling exhibit Mindbender Mansion and two art exhibitions on display in Fusion: A STEAM Gallery!

Attendees can also experience exciting offerings like viewing stars and planets through the giant refractor telescope in the Crosby Observatory, catching giant-screen films in the Dr. Phillips CineDome, conducting lab experiments in Dr. Dare’s Laboratory, participating in science trivia and delighting in food and adult beverages available for purchase.

Powered by PechaKucha offers guests an opportunity to listen, learn, and engage… and unwrap the hidden brilliance of Orlando!

Drawing its name from the Japanese term for “chitchat,” PechaKucha rests on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes the presentations concise and keeps things moving at a rapid pace. Speakers present their PechaKucha talk on a wide range of topics.

Enjoy Powered by PechaKucha presentations for free with admission to Science Night Live! Seating is limited so please reserve a time when you purchase your tickets. The two one-hour sessions begin at 8:30pm and 10:00pm

In Orlando Science Center’s latest permanent exhibit Kinetic Zone – Science in Motion, enjoy an eclectic array of hands-on, interactive exhibits that will let guests explore the fundamentals of forces, such as electricity, gravity, Newton’s Laws and much more.

Visitors can engage in a series of hands-on challenges and design, build and test their own creations in exhibits like the Coaster Challenge, which focuses on roller coaster engineering, and the Balance Challenge, where you test your creation’s balance on a series of ziplines.

Other experiences will allow you to use a pulley system to lift yourself off the ground, launch air rockets, make shocking discoveries at the electricity wall and explore the physics of the virtual world with flight and driving simulators.
