Pumpkin chucking, live wolves and bats, and Frankenstein-like projections are all part of the fun at NYSCI’s two-weekend celebration of Halloween and the Day of the Dead. Some activities require an additional fee; see details below.

October 26 Dead or Alive Activities:

  • Science Story Time, 11 am – Gather around and hear a story about a bat that loves to listen in during story time. He lives in the attic of a library and pokes his head through a hole in the floor to hear the stories. But how can he get close enough to see the pictures without scaring the children? Hear the whole story in the Science Technology Library as NYSCI’s librarian reads from Littlebat’s Halloween Story by Diane Mayr.
  • Pumpkin Chucking, 1 & 3 pm – Watch NYSCI’s catapult, Chuck, toss pumpkins in the air. Free with NYSCI admission.
  • Wolves of North America with Atka, 2 pm – Meet Atka, a live Arctic gray wolf from the Wolf Conservation Center, and learn about wolves, their relationship to the environment, and how humans can protect their future. $6 adults, $5 children, students & seniors, plus NYSCI admission. (NYSCI members: $3 per person.) Limited capacity. Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis on the day of the show.
