21+ StormFest
Friday, February 5th    

StormFest is back. The Carnegie Science Center is extending the popular weather-related event into the evening for the 21+ crowd! Discover the science of weather, learn about geography, geology, meteorology, and more!

  • Make rocks and weather maps.
  • Discover the effects of El Niño and updrafts.
  • Check out the fan-favorite tornado in a jar activity.
  • Try your hand at raindrop experiments.
  • Make some paper snowflakes to take home.
  • Experience weather demos by Science Center staff in the Works Theater. Watch a pencil break a wooden board at tornado speeds and witness a one-million volt lightning strike from our giant tesla coil!

Hands-on activity stations are deigned and presented by California University of Pennsylvania students, who are currently majoring in geology, geographic information systems, mathematics, and education. 

As always, 21+ Night features a cash bar, live music, and the chance to experience four floors of hands-on exhibits – with no kids! Find out more at
