Get ready to get messy!

Grab your paint clothes and dirty sneakers because we’re making an oozey, gooey mess here at the Maryland Science Center’s annual Mess Fest. Leave your messy mark on the windows of MSC, contribute to a collaborative melty crayon art project, witness a giant Coke and Mentos explosion along with some of our other biggest, messiest experiments, and more! Join us for two days of sloppy fun. And the best part? You don’t even have to clean up!
