Want a brainy-excuse for a ladies night out? The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium has you covered with Laides Night Out, a fun girl-gathering event for your science-savvy girlfriends. On Friday, August 22 from 6-9 p.m., enjoy mixing and mingling during an evening of excitement and entertainment – all with a science twist, including cocktail concoctions, lotion-potion labs, gem and mineral presentations, beauty demonstrations, food and wine samples, raffle prizes and giveaways.
Open to women 21 and over, admission for Ladies Night Out is $7 in advance and $10 on the day of the event, with funds raised earmarked to support the Science Center’s newest education program, GEMS Club, "Girls Excelling in Math and Science," which is open to girls in grades 3-8, the free club gathering is an opportunity to empower young girls to explore STEM fields. Meeting on the last Tuesday of the month, each event has a different theme. The next in the series, “Amazing Engineers,” on August 26, is a sweet succession to the inaugural club meeting - a sold-out success – encouraging girls to explore their ingenuity by building a bridge out of candy.
