It’s social, it’s science, and it’s 21 and up! Orlando Science Center is reserved strictly for adults at Science Night Live from 8pm to 11:30pm on Saturday, June 3, 2017. Attend this special Craft Beer Edition, always a highly anticipated and sold-out event each year.

Science Night Live presents everything you love about Orlando Science Center, plus special programming designed for adults, including: live presentations, stargazing with telescopes on the terrace (weather permitting), hands-on lab experiments in Dr. Dare’s Lab, giant-screen films in the Dr. Phillips CineDome, interactive exhibit halls, and more.

Guests can purchase a beer sampling punch card, allowing them to sample 12 two-ounce pours, which they can select among 15 beer sampling partners presented by Florida Distributing Co. There will also be food available for purchase from Hard Rock Café.

Guest Presenter: Dr. Anne Savage
Dr. Savage has traveled the world studying animals. She currently leads Walt Disney Parks and Resorts conservation efforts in collaboration with the Disney Conservation Fund to leverage the expertise of teams around the world, to help save some of the world’s most endangered animals.

Dr. Savage’s presentation, included with admission to Science Night Live at 9pm and 10pm, will highlight current conservation efforts for the cotton-top tamarin, a small primate native to Colombia. It takes many villages to help cotton-top tamarins continue to have a future in the wild, but as Dr. Savage will tell you, we are making great progress!

Designed and developed by Philadelphia’s The Franklin Institute for the Science Museum Exhibit Collaborative, Identity focuses on how science can shed light on three areas of our identity – physical, psychological and social — and enlists, among other things, the work of ground-breaking science, personal art and stories and even the work of an Emmy Award-winning musician to create an engaging journey through the science of human identity.

Admission includes informal craft beer seminars, all four floors of exhibits, live programming, films, and more. All guests can purchase the beer sampling punch card for an additional $10.
