Discovery Distilled: The Science of Heroes & Villains

Do superheroes and supervillains really have powers beyond us mortals, or are they just more resourceful than the rest of us?

Join us for Discovery Distilled: The Science of Heroes & Villains, the second event in a new 21+, casual, after-hours series at Fort Collins Museum of Discovery. Chat with experts from local tech and science organizations, launch yourself onto a Velcro wall (à la Spider Man), and cook up trouble in our Mad Scientist lair.  With some advanced physics and some great gear, perhaps you too could be superhuman. But… will you choose to use your powers for good or evil?

Come drink some beers, learn something new, and explore what your museum has to offer.  One drink ticket, snacks, and unforgettable experiences are included with admission. Costumes encouraged. Must be 21+ to purchase & participate with a valid ID.

Tickets $20/$15 for members
