Spotlight Camp: Zombie Camp! 
In this immersive "choose your own adventure" scenario, campers will take on the roles of scientists to investigate and, hopefully find a cure for, the mysterious (make-believe) disease the news media outlets call "The Zombie Flu!" The experience begins on June 24-28 at McLaughlin Middle School in Medford. For more details click below:

ScienceLive Shows
See science that fizzes, freezes, and pops in a ScienceLive show! Our ScienceLive demonstrators will lead you through exciting presentations that explore chemistry, physics, life science, and more.  These 20 to 30-minute long interactive performances give selected audience members a chance to help make real science happen on stage. Think like a scientist and discover phenomena twice a day on weekends all summer! Showtimes: Saturday and Sunday at 11:30-12:00 and 3:30-4:00. Great for all ages!
Dog Days at ScienceWorks
Bring your dog to ScienceWorks! On the second Sunday of each summer month, from 4 to 6, patrons can bring a well-socialized dog to ScienceWorks. Admission for dogs is only $2 accompanying one full-price human companion. ScienceWorks Wonder Guides will facilitate science fun for furry friends of all kinds, and their people too! We will provide some non-allergenic treats and watering stations, you provide the dog.  Look forward to some zany science facts about human’s best friend while creating dog puzzles and testing your dogs intelligence.

Store Spotlight: The Thundermaker 
This small tube and metal coil make an incredible rumble! The vibrating spring transfers its mechanical energy to the membrane, which transfers the energy into the tube in the form of sound. The length of the tube is just the right length to create standing waves and resonance. As a result of this, the vibrating spring efficiently converts its energy into sound by way of the membrane. This results in the loud thunder sound! You can purchase this and a multitude of other noise makers in the Explore Store.

Fill out this Wild Music survey for the chance to win a Thundermaker! 
Be a part of science in the making by filling out this survey about the exhibit Wild Music! ScienceWorks educators use surveys like this one to learn about the people who come to ScienceWorks and what they learn by being here. When you fill out a survey like this one, your information helps ScienceWorks researchers do real science!
Take our survey!
Coming up in July:  
7/4 : Fourth of July parade - watch for the ScienceWorks Float. 
7/6: Caballito Negro plays "songbirdsongs" on the plaza, free with admission. Members are always free!
7/20: “Apollo 50: Small Steps to a Giant Leap” exhibit opens!
