Mad Science and More at the Johnson Geo Centre

Saturday, Oct 31, 2020 10:00AM - 11:00AM

(RECORDED) Virtually visit the Geo Centre’s haunted laboratory this Halloween for a monstrously mad science show and spooktacular story time! The frighteningly fantastic staff will experiment with fire and gas…but that’s not all! You too can join in the fun at home with two hands on experiments, great for the little ghosts and ghouls! But participants beware…this could get a little messy! Then settle in for a spellbinding story time, sure to be delightfully frightful!
