First Friday From Home

Enjoy some of the best parts of First Friday without leaving the comfort of your home! First Friday from Home is the Science Center’s way of bringing First Friday to you virtually. Each event begins at 6pm on the first Friday of the month on our website and Facebook page. Every fifteen minutes throughout each event we post new content, including trivia, polls, presentations and other interactive elements for you to enjoy wherever you are. Check out these upcoming First Friday from Home virtual events:
