Not all is as it appears in the wild and more often than not, wildlife does whatever it can to disguise and deceive. Tricksters and charlatans have honed their abilities to become experts in camouflage, misleading and distraction. Indeed, to survive, many plants and animals play their part in nature’s great masquerade. Bring your best mask and join us for an illusionary evening of as we explore this world at our very own animal inspired masquerade party!
The program includes a special animal visitor, an interactive presentation, and a deceptively delicious dinner experience.

Experience science in the key of rock! Have you ever wondered about the science behind rock ‘n’ roll? How has technology shaped this multi-billion dollar industry?

See how music has shaped the tools of rock – and how those tools have changed the music.
