Ring in the New Year early this year as The Franklin Institute counts down to an explosive pre-launch to 2019. Celebrate with fiery live science shows, magic milk firework experiments, make-and-take noisemakers, plus live shows on the Science of Fireworks, and other surprises — all well before midnight on New Year's Eve. Plus, when the clock strikes NOON, what better way to close out 2018 and welcome in the New Year than with a massive ball pit explosion!
