Take a deeper dive into the salacious science of attraction this February. What draws us to one person and not another? What accounts for the crazy roller coaster of feelings associated with romance? Interactive science, hands-on activities, and guided presentations will aim to answer your most provocative questions and bring you one-step closer to understanding the key factors that lead to everlasting love. Explore the chemistry, physics, and mathematics of love and lust during this lovely February edition of Science After Hours.

DISCOVER! 
From Brooklyn’s premiere performance venue, House of Yes, comes ‘Geek Show!’ a motley crew of performers ready to blast you off to their kooky cosmos of games and play! With a twist of drag, a large pour of drama and a sprinkling of glitter, you’ll enjoy this team’s seriously silly take on science as they take over the museum’s Giant Heart exhibit.

DANCE!
Wassup Gina (Rhythm of the Night) brings her dark and dreamy DJ skills to an already steamy night in the museum by spinning in the one and only Fels Planetarium.

This event is Adults 21+ with a Cash Bar.

Here in the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection, we know that each person Loves & Lusts differently. While all Science After Hours events have a zero tolerance policy on discrimination (see below), we ask that tonight you pay special care to celebrating the many, diverse ways in which we experience romance.

Science After Hours events offer a welcoming environment in which all guests can freely delight in the fanciful, the frightening, and the just plain weird reaches of science.  We maintain that each guest has the right to fully experience and enjoy our programming regardless of their age, background, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic situation, religion, or abilities. Discrimination or harassment of any form will not be tolerated.
