High-Tech Halloween this year highlighted many things Mars-related. Audiences saw feature shows by the Los Alamos High School FIRST Robotics Team, LANL Chemistry Division staff about Cryogenics, and the crew from Kraz-E-Science doing a Physics show.
As usual, the Bradbury was very popular: 2,332 people enjoyed the 2-1/2 hour event. As always, the whole family had a “spooktacular” time they’ll remember all year. Mark your calendar for 2013: High-Tech Halloween always takes place the Friday before Halloween at the Bradbury Science Museum.
