Adults' Night Out
April 3, 2015
April’s First Friday encourages you to have a ball as Arizona Science Center celebrates America’s favorite sport: football! Adults 18 and over will score the chance to explore Gridiron Glory: The Best of the Pro Football Hall of Fame before it leaves in May for only $12 per person!
This impressive exhibit includes the Pro Football “birth certificate”, the Lombardi Trophy, a specially-designed “Hometown Tribute” section, spotlighting the Arizona Cardinals, and much more. Find Larry Fitzgerald’s shoes and gloves from his 400 career pass game, Dan Dierdorf’s jersey, and the Army Ranger Uniform worn by Pat Tilman in this Phoenix-specific area.
Additionally, guests will be able to roam around all four levels of the Center’s hands-on science galleries from 5:30—9:00 p.m. for FREE. Wear a hat, jersey or your favorite fan collectible to show your College or NFL spirit! A cash bar will be available including a selection of beer, wine and a special spectator’s cocktail, “The Tailgater”.
Don’t miss April’s lecture, “Gridiron Genomics: What happens when your brain takes a hit!” being presented in the Irene Flinn Theatre. There, Dr. Matthew Huentelman, from the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), will tackle concussions and brain injury. During Adults Night Out, listen to Dr. Huentelman as he discusses concussion research TGen is conducting in partnership with Arizona State University’s football program, helmet manufacturer, Riddell, Barrow Neurological Institute, and A.T. Still University. Learn about the latest in helmet-sensor technology and what we can accomplish by looking at players’ blood, saliva, and urine to make sports safer. **Seating is first-come, first-served
See local artist, Monica Aissa Martinez during April’s ART360 in the Dorrance Planetarium . Her work has been internationally seen and is presented in numerous private and public collections. Monica’s artwork reflects her draw to the physiology of the human body.
