Aspen Science Center

Photos from Science Sundays!


During Science Sundays, we transform local establishments like Jimmy’s Restaurant in Aspen into a mini science center, with lots of hands on (and sometimes messy!) demonstrations and experiments for kids (and adults! When the liquid nitrogen and vacuum chamber come out, sometimes the parents are more interested than the kids!). We’ve got slime, silly putty, bubbles floating on carbon dioxide, electricity and magnetism, light-changing beads and writing with light, a vortex cannon, experiments with graphene and ice, and more. There is easily four hours of entertainment, so we have many repeat customers!

Your $10 admission fee covers a light lunch of sandwiches and salads. Seriously, where else can you get lunch AND hours of educational fun for the kids for only $10? We have comfy chairs and tables to sit at – it’s a fun social time to meet new people in a fun and relaxed setting. We only warn you that you may find it very difficult to get your kids to leave!

Science Sundays occur in April and May each year. Check back for scheduling details to be released soon!
