12) Milk and Cookies Lab

Stop by our Milk and Cookies Lab for fun experiments involving both – you guessed it! – milk and cookies.

In one experiment, you’ll examine three samples of milk (fresh, refrigerated, and unrefrigerated) and learn about the bacteria found in spoiled food and beverages.

Fans of Friends will especially love our second experiment, “Monica’s Cookie Dissection,” where you’ll investigate the ingredients of a delicious cookie – just like Monica does in the episode “The One With Phoebe’s Cookies.”

13) Explore drone technology at the Innovation Station

Every month at LSC After Dark, our Innovation Station shows you the latest in must-see tech!

This month, we’re joined by the company SkyeBrowse! SkyeBrowse is an app that simplifies car crash investigations by the police. A drone is used to scan crash sites, and the drone relays a video, 3D model, and measurements through the app. This helps reduce the time it takes for crime scene investigation!

Stop by the Innovation Station and learn from SkyeBrowse how their app and drone technology is changing the future.

14) Angry Birds Universe

For an additional $6, you can experience LSC’s newest premium exhibition, Angry Birds Universe. Based on the popular games, the exhibition transports you into the world of Angry Birds for interactive adventures, both physically challenging and mentally stimulating. Use real slingshots to aim birds through the air, build and race vehicles in a live version of Angry Birds Go!, draw your own bird and animate it in the design studio, and more!

15) Search for fossils like paleontologist Dr. Ross Geller

One of our Friends activities is inspired by paleontologist Dr. Ross Geller! At our “Fossil Finders” station, you’ll sift through gravel to look for tiny (and real) fossils that you get to bring home with you. Use an identification key to figure out your fossil discoveries!

16) Rock out on the dance floor

Kick off the holiday season by rocking out on the dance floor with DJ Chelli!
