There’s nothing like attending a 21+ event full of like-minded, inquisitive adults and interacting with exhibits on green science and other scientific concepts. A drink or two is also a plus.The gin promo girl hooked me and my boyfriend up with an extra shot in my cocktail so our evening started off pretty well.
There was a machine that detected brain waves. The more relaxed you were, the higher and longer a ball would levitate in a tube. I was frustrated because my boyfriend won at first, but we found out that my side had been less sensitive. So when we switched sides and I did way better than he did.
My boyfriend tried to run against a real-time simulated screen of a paraplegic athlete and lost. I don’t blame him, that guy was really fast. The butterfly conservatory was so amazing; I even got to see a live Blue Morpho butterfly fluttering by among countless others. The science center had a bunch of plants, moths, pupa, and caterpillars on display. We witnessed the uncommon occurrence of a caterpillar pupating right before our eyes under a microscope connected to a screen.
They had various workshops on cannabis and medical marijuana and a few strains were on display under microscopes. And at the end of the night we explored the universe in a space travel simulator. I’m a huge fan of seeing all the different colors of the galaxy. Overall, I highly recommend the science straight up event at the CT science center for a date night with your nerdy other half. There’s something for everyone!
