Do this and more at the Carnegie Science Center adults only tribute to everything SciFi. The event is for the 21+ crowd only as you can journey back to the future, bust some ghosts plus check out four floors of exhibits.

On hand will be replicas of the “Back to the Future” DeLorean as well as the Ghostbuster’s car. Whip up a batch of ectoplasm at the slime chemistry table. Learn where SciFi got its start with Mary Shelly’s “Frankenstein” in the Works Theater show “Frankenscience” that features the Center’s large Tesla coil (that’s one-million volt of light and sound). Groove to the music of Uke Skywalker and Tuba Fett with the Stormtrooper Dancers while sipping a libation from the cash bar (snacks will also be available for purchase during the event).
