Adults were finally able to visit Discovery Lab for on their own this past Thursday for Discovery After Dark. The Museum hosted its first adult night featuring local food trucks, Ruth's Chicken and V'Fresco, alongside local brews from Dead Armadillo Craft Brewing.
Attendees sorted balls in Ballapalooza, saw fabric fly in Fans and Fabric, and created windmills in the WorkShop - all while having a beer in hand.
During regular operating hours at the Museum, every guest must have a child under the age of 12 with them.
Curious minds gathered around to experience a science demonstration that featured weather-related experiments for attendees to learn more about Oklahoma's storm season. Special guest and 2 News Meteorologist Brandon Wholey explained the science behind why the temperatures drop as thunderstorms move through Green Country as Director of Education Chip Lindsey created a geyser of liquid nitrogen creating a cloud that models a microburst known as a thunderstorm.
Discovery After Dark attendee Gabby Stallings described her favorite part of the evening was getting to act like a kid with her husband. "It's the best date night because there is so much to do and see, all while sipping beer from one of our favorite breweries," she said.
The next Discovery After Dark will be on August 25 from 6-9 p.m.
