The Discovery to host “The Discovery After Dark” A night at the museum exclusively for middle school students


The_DiscoveryDISCOVERY MUSEUM NEWS RELEASE – On Friday, March 29, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm the Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum (The Discovery) will open its door after hours for ‘The Discovery After Dark’, a special event exclusively for students in 7th and 8th grade.

The Discovery After Dark will feature hands-on science experiments including a homemade hydrogen demonstration, a variety of art projects such as artistic buttons and tie dye science, a live DJ, and a Facebook photo booth so attendees can share their museum experience with their friends and family. St. Lawrence Pizza will offer a slice of pizza and a soda for $5.

“Middle school students might not be sure The Discovery offers things that will interest them,” said Patrick Turner, marketing manager. “We hope this event will help clarify that The Discovery offers a number of things, including art and science classes and series, that are tailored to their age group.”

Tickets for The Discovery After Dark are $10 for Discovery members and $15 for nonmembers. Tickets can be purchased online at www.nvdm.org or at the museum’s admission desk during normal museum hours. Only 300 tickets for this event are available.
