Science is most enthralling when it's cool and visually exciting. That's why Brooklyn Children Museum's 3rd Annual IckyFest packs such a powerful punch--treating families to a variety of science-based activities. IckyFest educates children about naturally occurring events that are usually considered gross, but are important to the cycle of life.

During this unique weekend festival, kids become grossologists—scientific experts on all things slimy, yucky, and downright disgusting, while creating their very own snotty slime, dissecting owl pellets, taking pictures with Sid the Science Kid and much more! Children of all ages are encouraged to attend. All IckyFest WEEKEND programs are included with general Museum admission.

In addition to great programs, kids also get a chance to visit the Science Inquiry Center equipped with creepy, crawly specimens, preserved collection objects, and live animals where they can learn about worms, bugs, spiders, lizards, and snakes; and speaking of snakes, look out for Fantasia, the Museum’s own 20+ foot snake celebrity, as she slithers out of her home in style for an up close and personal meet and greet with her fans. Yes, you can touch her if you dare!

Special appearances by Sid the Science Kid™, as featured on Award-winning and Emmy nominated PBS Kids Series will take place on November 20th & 21st from 11am - 4pm.
