Enjoy special screenings of the films Energie and Electrum, create and tame sparks of your own with Senior Physicist Paul Doherty, observe glowing pickles with biologist Caitlin Johnson, and explore The Neuron Chamber with staff scientist in resident Alan Rorie. Don’t miss this gathering of electrically charged presentations!

The event begins at 6pm and runs through 10pm. Admission to the Exploratorium and the After Dark party is free to members or $14 for adults. For more information and to RSVP, visit the Exploratorium Facebook page.
