The museum portion of the Science Spectrum will not be free or discounted during the day of the event.
There will be a special presentation in the OMNI theater of Dream Big: Engineering Our World which will speak in depth of engineer throughout human history and what is expected to come in the future as engineering programs become more innovative with our changing world. Tickets for the OMNI theater will be just $5 the day of this event. The free engineer event will last from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, February 18, in the lobby inside of the Science Spectrum and not in the actual museum exhibit areas.
