OMSI After Dark


OMSI After Dark is "...where science nerds unite for childfree, brain-building science fun".  We're not science geeks, but when we were offered tickets to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry's After Dark Burgers and Brew event we were more than happy to spend an evening exercising our brains in the name of two of our favorite things!

The event truly was an adult-themed night with DJs and a mini-beer festival with 17 local breweries handing out samples via tokens. Along with the traditional exhibits, special demonstrations and exhibits were set up with the burgers and beer theme. There was ultrasonic beer geysers, beer pong physics, flash freezing beer and OMSI's version of beer goggles. Burger themed science demonstrations included learning the chemistry behind BBQ, learning to smell and taste your beef and delicious elk sliders by Nicky USA.

We attempted to play their mind games and wasn't very successful.

There were snacks, but only if you knew what each cookie represented on the periodic table.

We preferred to play old fashion games like Connect Four with a slightly robotic Science twist. It was a fun night.
