Thank you to everyone who came out and discovered all the many forms of transportation at Beaker Bash 2017: ‘Are We There Yet?’! We had a full house here at McWane Science Center with over 1,000 moms, dads, kids, and families. Together we navigated down winding roads, soared through the air, sailed across the seas, and rode along the tracks! It was a night of games, dancing, eating, and best of all, learning! Check out these great pictures of the event, and visit our flickr page to see even more photos from our Beaker Bash 2017 adventures.

We can’t wait to see you all next year! If you didn’t make it to the 2017 event and would like to join us next year be sure to keep an eye on this page. Information for the 2018 event will be coming soon!

We would like to give a special thank you to our 2017 Beaker Bash Sponsors!
