Join your host Nick Gray, Education Program Coordinator at the WOW, for an evening learning experience in Lodi!  Do you have a mind filled with random, seemingly useless scientific information? Are you fond of proving to others that you’re not just a pretty face? Do you like to eat, drink, and think?  You’re in luck, because Science Trivia Night is back!

As always, Science Night Live has a cash bar for beer and wine purchases and a food truck for dinner and snacks, so you won’t go thirsty or hungry throughout the evening.

Contact the museum for directions and more information at 209.368.0969 or nick[at]wowsciencemuseum[dot]org.
