Written by: developer

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Oct. 10, 2016) – This Friday and Saturday, Oct. 14 and 15, there will be plenty to partake in at the Space Foundation Discovery Center, including Mad Science experiments for those 21 and older and a 3D Design and Printing workshop best suited for young engineers age 10 and up.

Space After Dark: Mad Science – Fri. Oct. 14, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
We will be playing with the weird and wonderful, exploring fun and edgy mad science experiments. For those 21+ only, the evening includes two drink tickets, light bites and admission to the event for $15. Guests are encouraged to dress as their favorite mad scientist.

Tesla’s Toolbox: 3D Design and Printing – Sat. Oct. 15, 10:00 a.m. – noon
3D printing is a popular topic now, but is rarely seen in action. During this Toolbox, participants will learn how simple it can be to create a 3D model. We will also learn how 3D printers work as they create new models in real time. Space is limited for this workshop, so pre-registration is recommended and can be done here: Tesla’s Toolbox is included in regular Discovery Center admission.

The Space Foundation Discovery Center offers events for all ages every month. The event calendar can be viewed at
