Chocolaty confections will abound, much to the delight of science-lovers and chocoholics at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium’s ninth annual Science of Chocolate event. From 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday, February 8 and Sunday, February 9, guests will experience instant chemistry with a variety of interactive chocolate experiments.
Tasting stations will offer guests the opportunity to sample the cocoa creations, and learn the history, science and health benefits of one of the world’s oldest and most-loved treats. Activities include Armpit Fudge, Chocolate Playdough, Senses of Chocolate Station, Chocolate Olympic Torches, a liquid nitrogen ice cream demonstration and a never-ending chocolate fountain. Armpit Fudge, a new activity this year, will give guests the opportunity to create their own fudge – using the science of friction – in the armpit region, but don’t worry, plastic baggies will shield the flavorful-fudge.
The Science of Chocolate event is free with paid Science Center admission.
Guests can also explore the Science Center’s newest traveling exhibit, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition.
During Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, admission to the Science Center is $15 for adults, $11.50 for children ages 3 to 12, and $13.50 for seniors over the age of 62. SFSCA members can enjoy the exhibit for free.
