Science of Creepy
Join us for an afternoon of exploring the science of creepy. Make your own fake vial of blood, become a zombie while learning about biological simulations, and create a real habitat for a fake creature. Do it all, while listening to live music!
Prizes will be handed out for those who come in costume.
All activities are free with NYSCI admission.
