Ever wonder how power permeates homes to create electric light? Or how a juicy pickle can become a glowing orb? Learn more about these and other high-voltage topics surrounding electric power in the next installment of the popular Adult Night series at the Discovery Center of Idaho.
Previous Adult Nights delved into the science behind explosions, brewing and photography, offering an in-depth look at often overlooked scientific principles with fun, engaging exhibits—and most importantly, with adult beverages and not a kid in sight.
Event organizers bring new meaning to the words "shock and awe" Thursday, May 23, with the latest installment. Lightning bolts, static bursts and sparks take center stage as staff take visitors inside the inner workings of electric power—sure to jolt visitors with facts and fun.
As always, the adults-only events combine scientific exploration with a laid-back vibe and plenty of diversions to go along with the education. Archie's Place and Saint Lawrence Gridiron food trucks will both be on hand to pair food with a pint from Crooked Fence or Payette Brewing companies. Indian Creek Winery will also be pouring the vino.
DCI Education Director Woody Sobey will lead audiences in a demonstration of electricity's high-voltage principles, and visitors will have access to the center's newest exhibition, Try This!
Tickets cost $10 per person, $8 for DCI members, and your first drink is included in the price of admission. Adult Nights are always popular, so plan ahead and buy a ticket in advance.
