You might have missed Coachella this year, but you can make up for it at SciChella at Liberty Science Center on April 19th. This event will honor Coachella season and LSC will add their own scientific twist to the famous California festival. Enjoy a mix of art and tech, meet talented artists and grab some delicious bites and drinks all night long.
They’ll have some activities which can be found at Coachella such as a giant slide (great for pictures/videos), arts and crafts (a flower crown making booth) and you’ll be able to make your own tie-dye slime. LSC also has a new exhibit: Dream Machine. It’s an interactive, sensory exhibit that combines smell with sound, touch, and light to create a fun and new experience.
At SciChella, they’ll be nine local artists who touch upon everything from visual art to fashion, four DJ’s and you can feel the science of sound with their musical Tesla coils. They will also have festival-style food from Midnight Market, an Amaretto tasting (courtesy of Jersey City Buy-Rite), a specialty bar, and more. While you’re partying, you can climb through the Infinity Climber, and find your way through the Touch Tunnel. Don’t forget to catch two shows in the Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium: The Foo Fighters Laser Show and the Saturn, LIVE! planetarium show.
