In January guests discovered everything from animal physiology to digital animation, there’s more to the science of motion than meets the eye. Social Science: Animated, featured Guest Speaker Dr. Ed Lu, Chairman and CEO, B612 Foundation, and Former NASA Astronaut spoke about how he is leading the charge to protect Earth from asteroid strikes. Guests also got to tryout newly developed video games, learn hip-hop from dance troupes Gaudium Dance Movement and Essence of Motion , and create a zoetrope animated film.  Super Sonic Lips closed out the night with their experimental rock music. Get your tickets today to be a part of Social Science: Extreme on April 18. Where you can check out our new traveling exhibition, The World’s Largest Dinosaurs and uncover scientific extremes. It’ll be the biggest, baddest Social Science yet!

By day, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science certainly sees its share of field trips and family outings. But by night, our Social Science events provide a rare opportunity for guests ages 21 and up to experience everyday exhibits and exclusive programs in an adults-only atmosphere. So get ready to get hands on with an interactive exhibit — or leave your hands free to enjoy a signature cocktail. At Social Science, the choice is yours!
