Family Night: Halloween Hootenanny says
Enjoy a night of playful exploration with thematic activities at the Thinkery’s exclusive family after-hours event! Each evening includes access to Thinkery’s exhibits and a cash bar with snacks, kid-friendly drinks, beer and wine.

Whether you come dressed as a paleontologist, superhero, princess, or a buzzing bee you will love doing spooky science with us!

The evening’s spooktastic line up includes:

Pumpkin Pandemonium - UT’s Fun with Chemistry Program brings you exploding pumpkins, vomiting pumpkins and smoking pumpkins. Messy fun for everyone!

Spooky Sand Bracelets - Make a spooky bracelet and learn about ghoulishly fun upcoming Austin events from Do512 Family.

Bug Bites – Join Little Herds to learn about the benefits of eating insects and crunch a cricket for yourself.

Owl Pellet Dissections – Curious about what owls eat? Find out as you carefully dissect the regurgitated undigested parts of an owl’s meal.
