Grab your tackiest holiday sweater and chill out under a flurry of snowflakes while grooving to a DJ set by Nathan Blaz of Geographer and the syrupy-sweet sounds of up and coming Portland R+B act Shy Girls.
In the East Garden, meet a pair of live reindeer and learn how these “nomads of the North” stay warm during the coldest season of the year as part of the Academy’s holiday exhibit ’Tis the Season for Science.
Get crafty (and cross a few stocking stuffers off your list!) while making DIY holiday cards and fingerless gloves with GoGo Craft. Run head on into a photo booth hosted by Magnolia Photo Booth Co. and pose with your very own handmade reindeer antlers, courtesy of SCRAP.
In the planetarium, view three special screenings of Back To The Moon For Good, a Google Lunar XPRIZE fulldome show that chronicles the global competition to reach the Moon and push the boundaries of lunar exploration.
And because no holiday party would be complete without sugary sweets and spiked libations, enjoy chocolate tastings with Ghirardelli Chocolate and a hot beverage bar featuring ciders, teas, hot toddies, and more.
Plus, relish in childhood memories of yore while decorating a gingerbread village. At the Project Lab, view brrr!-resistant furs and pelts from the Academy’s collection.
