Hands-on learning awaits...

The weekend before Halloween, there is a lot going on at SciWorks.

Parents’ Night Out — October 23, 5:30-11:30 pm

Is it time for a Date Night?

Of course it is! Whether you are going to an adult Halloween party, dinner and a movie, or the opera, you can drop the kids (ages 4- 11) off at SciWorks.SeasonTicketsRIG1-NEW

SciWorks has partnered with Piedmont Opera so that you can enjoy an evening at the opening night performance of Rigoletto. This is your opportunity to witness world class opera without having to leave the Triad! While you enjoy the voice of international opera star and UNCSA graduate René Barbera, your children will receive pizza dinner, museum time, planetarium show and a late night snack.

Parents’ Night Out is not exclusive to opera-goers. The point is … have a date night, don’t bother calling a sitter and just drop your kids off where they will have tons of fun! The cost is $25 per child for SciWorks Members and Opera patrons; $30 for all others.

Reserve your space now!  Contact Christy Ferguson by email or call her at (336) 714-7105.
