Experience Weird Science at Mystic Aquarium during February school vacation week. Curiosity, learning and wonder will heighten with all of the weird and wonderful demonstrations, hands-on activities and displays throughout the aquarium.

Do you know what happens when you put Ivory soap in the microwave? Come find out - it’s going to be really big! Watch bubbles grow and burst with a burst of “smoke” as we combine water, soap and carbon dioxide. In our kids zone, there will be fun interactive tables with insta-snow and flubber. Through hands-on fun, learn how belugas use their blubber to stay warm and find out how animals see the world. Take part in a scavenger hunt and discover cool animals throughout the aquarium, including some that carry their babies in their mouths!

Daily activities are from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and are included with aquarium admission.
