Four times a year, the museum hosts four free admission dates to remain dedicated to “providing Dayton-area residents with science-focused programming and fun for the entire family,” according to a Boonshoft press release. The next Super Science Saturday will be Nov. 17.

Colorama will be all about discovering just how interesting colors can be. Programs and exhibits will dive into why leaves change color before falling, what colors can tell us about chemical reactions and even how different cultures from around the world have been inspired by the colors found in nature.
