Social Science: Cosmos

Thursday, April 12

6-10 p.m.

Get out there.

Cheers to the cosmos! On April 12, nearly 60 years ago, astronaut Yuri Gagarin became the first person to venture into space. To celebrate, we’re sweeping you lightyears away for an evening of exploration and fun. Enjoy a cosmo as you build your own satellite, drop a parachute from stories high, and learn to communicate in space. Adventure awaits! All you need is curiosity and a bit of stardust.

It’s okay to be a kid at heart, but you’ll need to bring a valid 21+ ID to this Social Science event.
