Hail Halloween with Spooky Science

Saturday, October 27, 2012
12:00pm to 4:00pm

Maryland Science Center
601 Light Street
Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, 21230

Discover and dissect creepy chemistry and scary science at this ghastly gathering – the Maryland Science Center’s 4th annual Spooky Science on Saturday October 27 from 12-4 p.m.

Mad Science of Central Maryland will join the fearsome festivities with performances of their “Halloween Spooktacular” show, bringing bubbling potions, wicked brews and electrifying effects straight from their Mad Science Lab. “Halloween Spooktacular” shows take place at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

Ghoulish guests can create and experiment with glow-in-the-dark slime, analyze loathsome objects in Mystery Boxes, catapult pumpkins in the “Punkin’ Chunkin’” contest, and decorate pumpkins and trick-or-treat bags at decoration stations. Frankenstein’s eerie experiments will add more horror to this haunt – on display during the “Before Frankenstein’s Monster” shows. Shows take place at 12:20 p.m. and 2:20 p.m.

Visitors are encouraged to dress to impress (and scare!) in creative costumes.

All Spooky Science activities are free with paid admission to the Maryland Science Center and free for members. The Maryland Science Center is located at 601 Light Street at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. For information and tickets, visit or call the 24-Hour Information Line at 410-685-5225.
