Throw your head back and cackle in delight because it’s time to grab your beakers, wacky glasses, and lab coats. It’s the “Mad About Science Gala“, Thursday, October 11, 2012 from 6:30-10 p.m. at Clark Planetarium.
You’ve been waiting for this moment to dress up as your favorite Mad Scientist and bring your creature to life. (O.K. maybe just bring a normal date and you don’t HAVE to dress up.) Enter our costume contest and win prizes sure to inspire the amateur scientist. There will be music, entertainment and we’ll be celebrating great inventions being developed in Utah today.
We’ll be starting off the evening with cocktails, a silent auction, and science demonstrations from Clark Planetarium staff. Dinner will be sponsored by some of Salt Lake’s best restaurants and caterers. The evening will end with a live auction in the Hansen Dome Theatre followed by the Led Zeppelin Laser Show in the dome or sci-fi favorites in the ATK IMAX Theatre.
Proceeds support Clark Planetarium’s leading edge space science education program serving over 83,000 school children a year.
