The 19th annual High-Tech Halloween Friday Oct. 26 at the Bradbury Science Museum combines the wonders of science and engineering in a “spooktacular” setting.


Come to the museum between 4 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. and learn many things pertaining to Mars, with three feature presentations on robotics, cryogenics and physics.


Learn what the Los Alamos National Laboratory-built ChemCam is discovering on its exploration of the Mars surface.


Watch old movie clips that show the wacky and weird of how Mars has been portrayed.


Visitors also can see cool Earth critters like scorpions and spiders, and learn about DNA, the basic building block of life on Earth.


“The whole family can have a ‘spooktacular’ time you’ll remember the whole year,” said Bradbury Science Museum Director Linda Deck.


High-Tech Halloween is part of Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation’s “Trick or Treat on MainStreet.”


There is never an admission fee to events at the Bradbury Science Museum, 15th Street and Central Avenue in downtown Los Alamos. The museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday, and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday and Monday.
