The Science Center Went Steampunk on Friday — and Everyone Had a Victorian Good Time


The St. Louis Science Center takes Fridays very seriously, with a themed evening of special events the first Friday of each month. Last Friday was no exception, as the Science Center hosted a night entirely devoted to steampunk science. The event drew everyone from families to costumed fanatics. All enjoyed a night of demonstrations (did someone say "escape artist"?), activities (where else can you try a steampunk shooting range?), films and more devoted to this take on Victorian-era science fiction. So mark your calendars for April -- after seeing how much fun they had last week, you won't want to miss First Fridays again.
