August’s pARTy will feature a science theme in preparation for the Roswell Science and Art Festival coming later this fall to the Convention and Civic Center. This month’s pARTy After Hours will offer a variety of activities in a fun, social atmosphere, including a live DJ, photo booth, interactive science and art activities, a science trivia game and a planetarium star show.

The evening will be flexible with visitors able to pick and choose in which activities they would like to participate. Five Star DJ and Photo Booth will play music and snap photos. Explora from Albuquerque will have interactive science activities in which to participate and observe all evening.

At 6:30 p.m., Miranda Howe from Bone Springs Arts Space will demonstrate the art medium of egg tempera and will teach the process. At 7 p.m., a team-based Science Trivia Game will commence and prizes will be given to winners.
