Science Sleepovers!

Science After Dark

Bring your family or Scout troop on a science siesta! Discover the science of shuteye as you explore circadian rhythms and hibernation. Investigate ultraviolet light in our glow room. Test your reflexes in our simulated sleep deprivation challenge and make a sleep mask to help you slumber the night away. You might get to snooze next to R2-D2, dream beside seahorses, or catch some Z's near a space station.

Cost: $35 per person. Call 412.237.1637 to register.

Girls Sleepover: Reading Under the Stars

May 9

Carnegie Science Center is partnering with Scholastic for this special sleepover. The 2014 Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge invites kids to read books and help set a new world record for summer reading. This summer's theme is "Reading Under the Stars," and at this sleepover's planetarium show, girls will receive a book, a flashlight and a glow-in-the-dark bookmark. Through the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge, from May 5 – September 5, 2014, students can read books, log minutes, earn rewards, and unlock star constellations.
