Adult Night at Discovery Center is Blowing Up


As no shortage of Internet memes featuring Neil DeGrasse Tyson point out, science is pretty rad. The only drawback is that so much of the attempt to impart how awesome science is gets focused on kids. Adults miss out on the fun.

That's why the Discovery Center of Idaho started its monthly Adult Night, in which older folks can come into the science center to play, toss back a few brewskis, and take part in a series of presentations on a particular topic of adult interest.

The Thursday, June 28, event focused on explosions, including an attempt to set the record for the largest Coke and Mentos explosion in the state's history.

BW stopped by with its trusty video camera to make sure that shizzle got documented.
