Experience First Thursdays (the first After Dark each month) where we focus on one topic—this time, superpowers. What’s your favorite one? Shapeshifting? Teleportation? Explore the extraordinary abilities of insects, plants, fungi, and fascinating microscopic creatures, and learn how members of our own species exceed their native capabilities through training or technology. Sharpen your senses through experiments in synesthesia and memory, build a Tesla coil, and consider how the forces of imagination and compassion change the world. Also, enjoy exhibits, demonstrations, and our pitch-black Tactile Dome.
