12 Days of Science

‘Tis the season for science! Liberty Science Center is back with another amazing 12 Days of Science winter event. Join us from Dec. 26 through Jan. 1 for a building filled with seasonal experiments, shows, live animal presentations, and more!

This year, we have plenty of new adventures. Take a photo inside our massive snow globe that you’ve got to see to believe. Use gooey gak to learn how glaciers move in our Glacier Gak Lab. Solve a mystery and uncover who stole a plate of holiday cookies at the Cookie Caper Lab.

Plus, returning favorites! Take a shot on our indoor ice hockey rink made from a high-tech synthetic polymer surface. Walk into a winter wonderland made completely of TP at our Toilet Paper Blizzard!

Be there for special presentations on select dates. At our Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream Show (Dec. 26, 31, Jan. 1, at 11:00 am and 3:00 pm), you’ll learn how to make ice cream with liquid nitrogen and even try a taste. At the live owl show (Dec. 27 & 28, at 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 2:00 pm), you’ll meet owls from the Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge and learn what makes these feathered friends so unique. At the live penguin show (Dec. 29 & 30 at 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 2:00 pm), you’ll meet penguins from Jenkinson’s Aquarium and learn all about these amazing birds.

While you're here, be sure to perform a check-up in Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit, solve a mystery in The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes, explore the secrets of microbes in our new Microbes Rule! exhibition, and catch a show in the Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium, the biggest planetarium in the Western Hemisphere.

That’s not all! Additional activities include our new Simple Machine Playground, where kids learn about machines via classic playground toys. Kids can Suit Up for Science! and learn about careers in science by dressing up in different outfits. You can also watch insects paint an original artwork right in front of your eyes at our Art-thropods presentation.

During 12 Days of Science, you have the chance to win big. Send us photos of your trip to LSC during 12 Days on Twitter, Instagram, or posted on our Facebook wall.
