Halloween is on a Saturday. And it’s a full moon. And clocks roll back the next day. The universe is practically begging everyone to celebrate, so the Science Museum of Virginia is doing just that with some spooky science fun!

 

Activities include:

  • Ghostly Galleries
    • Chills, thrills and hopefully no spills as educators perform spine-tingling science experiments in the galleries, including spooky spiders, sickening slime, cool bubbles and even a Frankenstein-inspired organ dissection or two!
  • Frightful Forge
    • Guests can light up their Halloween with holiday-inspired glowing LED jewelry workshops in The Forge. Additionally, on October 31, there will be special workshops to help guests accessorize their disposable masks.
  • “Phantom of the Universe”
    • Space isn’t spooky – or is it?! Guests can learn about unlocking the mysteries of dark matter in a special showing of this planetarium show every day at 2 p.m. on the 76-foot screen in the Dome theater.

 

 

When:
Wednesday, Oct. 28, through Saturday, Oct. 31

In addition to the special activities happening inside the building, the Museum’s next Science on Tap kicks off the Halloween festivities. The adults-only virtual event is Tuesday, Oct. 27, at 8:30 p.m. Whether it’s spiders, zombies, snakes or blood suckers, guests are invited to step into the web of terror and enjoy some strange science stories during Fright Night. This event is free and open to the first 300  adult registrants.

Who:
Curious-minded guests of all ages are invited to enjoy the in-Museum activities. Science lovers who can’t visit in-person but want to join in the Halloween-themed fun can find spider, pumpkin and bat STEM at Home activities posted on the Museum’s website and social media pages.

Science on Tap is for adults (18+).

Why:
The Museum has a long tradition of creating holiday-themed content and activities. It is another way for the Museum to remind Virginians that science is all around them, and highlight ways we’re all connected to STEM. Plus, it’s fun for both staff and guests!

Where:
Science Museum of Virginia, 2500 W. Broad St., Richmond, VA 23220

Museum operating hours are Wednesday through Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

How:
Gallery and Forge activities are included with Museum admission. Museum members and children two and under are admitted free. “Phantom of the Universe” requires an additional Dome ticket. The Museum offers discounts for military, teachers and EBT cardholders. Call 804.864.1400 for details about reserving tickets with the discount code.

The Museum has adjusted operating procedures, including purchasing tickets online in advance, to help ensure a safe environment for all who enter the building. Guests are encouraged to review the reopening policies on the Museum’s website at www.smv.org/welcome  before their visit.

Science on Tap is presented by WestRock.

Black Bear Spotted in James River Park

I can barely contain my excitement about a bear.

The black bear is not the bear being reported but rather a placeholder bear from Wikipedia until someone gets a picture.

Reported by Stephanie on the Woodland Heights Facebook group:

My husband was out on a long ramble with our dog and the dog became very keyed up as they got to the top of the pedestrian bridge at 42nd st. Husband looked down in time to catch a glimpse of a bear.
The bear was seen entering the underbrush near the bottom of the steps. This was at 11:40 this morning.
Sorry, no photos. 😕
This is not the first time that they have seen bears in the park at about this time of year.
So, heads up, neighbors!
While not common black bears in James River Park are not unheard of. As recently as this past June there was a black bear on the North Bank trail that eventually wandered into town. Full story on the June bear here.
