Punch it, Chewie!

You’re headed to the Maryland Science Center for a night of family fun in a galaxy far, far away. Track down kyber crystals and forge your own lightsaber. Decode Aurebesh messages, hidden throughout the exhibit halls and search for all the Masters of the Force— from the galactic cities to the outer rim. Design and befriend your own droid to take home with you, and more!

This event is intended for families with children ages 5+. All attendees must purchase a ticket. Children must have an adult in their party.
