Learn how to give your child a leg up on those Halloween costume contests at this special effects workshop. Meet the artists and technologists who make your nightmares come alive and participate in hands-on activities that’ll tap into your creepy side. You’ll make wounds out of cocoa, learn how to mold and cast, create digital effects with a green screen, try your hand at making costumes out of cardboard, demo fake blood cannons, and work with dye and cornstarch for special effects. Your Halloween costumes will never be the same. Most activities are free with museum admission. Some activities may require a small materials fee. All ages.
