Your local science center is a great location to choose for a fun date idea!
With all of the exhibits and hands-on experiments at your local science center, it’s a great place for a fun date idea. Here are a few fun ideas that you can customize according the the exhibits available at your local science center.
Participate in an experiment: There are likely live experiments going on in a staged area of the center. Have you or your date volunteer to help during one of the experiments. Want to make sure you are picked out of the audience? You can call your local center ahead of time and make some secret arrangements!
Do Something Daring: Does your local science center have a rock climbing wall or another hands-on exhibit that’s a little daring? A fun date idea would be to try something new & daring together.
Animal Quiz: You’ll find a lot of facts about various animals and insects at the science center. Take turns quizzing each other at various animals displays. Not sure what to ask? There will be signs at each display with interesting facts that you can use for your quiz.
Sports Challenge: There will likely be a few sports challenges that you can compete in during your date. Some ideas of exhibits your center may have are basketball or virtual golf. The first player to reach 5 points could be considered the winner (and maybe a bet could be that the loser has to buy drinks after the date!).
Build Something Together: A fun date idea is to work together to build something. The science center is full of hands-on experiments to choose from. Look for areas providing hands-on construction displays.
Friendly Race Competition: Find an area where you can build something to have a race such as building cars or sailboats. Another fun date idea is to find a hands-on experiment and have a friendly competition to see who can complete the task successfully in the shortest amount of time.
