GEO After Dark

Why should kids have all the fun?

The GEO After Dark series is a new program at the Johnson GEO CENTRE this summer for adults who are interested in science.  Every two weeks we will feature a different science topic that may include hands-on science experiments, getting a close up view of some natural geological wonders, stargazing in our inflatable planetarium and more!  This is a 19+ event as there will be cash bar services available.  ID’s will be checked at the door.

For more information or to RSVP for an evening,  please contact Cristal Collins, 737-7849.
