Talk about tasty creations. They’ll have them Saturday at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History as the museum will host another Science on Tap from 7-10 p.m. The theme is Sweet and Savory.
Guests age 21 and over will dive mouth-first into the delicious world of food at this iteration of Science on Tap. The evening will include edible experiments, food and drink samples from local artisans, breweries and distilleries, and chats from local experts on different areas of food and gastronomy. The museum’s Community Partners will also be bringing in tons of hands-on activities and offering several different demonstrations where guests will be able to learn new skills, such as the best cookie decorating techniques, and a new crowd-pleasing recipe with an unlikely ingredient.
“Our last Science on Tap was in October. It was a Halloween themed event that we called Spooky Science on Tap: Haunted History. It was such a fun event for everyone to attend in their costumes and participate in our second annual SOT costume contest and participate in a wide variety of haunted Halloween-inspired experiences,” said Whitney Fournier, Public Programs Manager for the museum.
“Science on Tap is a wonderful event for several reasons. It turns the museum into a fun social space for adults to explore together and learn in a space that we have transformed just for them. Being able to experience the Museum after hours with a drink in your hand is not an every-day occurrence, which makes them extra special.”
Fournier said the event also brings together a wide array of local artisans and organizations, whom the museum calls Community Partners, to share their stories and offerings.
“We want the museum to be seen as a hub for community engagement and be able to connect our guests with these local organizations they might not have had the chance to engage with yet in another setting,” she said.
General admission tickets are $20 and VIP tickets are $30. Doors open for general admission at 7 p.m. but visitors can purchase a VIP ticket for admission to a private social hour from 6-7 p.m. featuring shortened lines, early access to the bar and activities and other fun surprises.
Museum members pay the general admission price, but automatically receive VIP status. They must call 817-255-9540 to purchase their tickets and receive this upgrade.
Also, a valid ID is required to attend.
“One of the most fun and intriguing elements of Science on Tap is that each event has a different theme. Those themes allow us all to explore different areas of science and history that we may not have the opportunity learn much about in other settings,” Fournier said. “At Science on Tap: Sweet and Savory we are diving deep into the delicious science of food and drink.
“With so much going on at Science on Tap you definitely do not want to miss out on all the fun.”
