The Twisted Science Scavenger Hunt

Put on your lab coat…

…and get ready to uncover some seriously weird science at the Liberty Science Center.

On your scientific adventure, you might…

  • Explore a mini city of the world’s tallest skyscrapers
  • Catch a fastball booger
  • Scurry after beasts in their birthday suits
  • Get tangled in a communications web
  • Peek at pests that pestered famous explorers
  • Meet poisonous frogs and venomous snakes
  • Squeeze light from a stone
  • Decrypt a colorful code
  • Swim with lots and lots of fishes

Don’t worry if your name isn’t Einstein: no special knowledge of the museum or science is required to have fun—or even to win. All you need is a sharp mind and comfy shoes.

The Kids Edition, suitable for ages 7 and up, provides an entertaining and memorable activity for birthday parties, school field trips, camp and youth-group outings—you name it!

Brain Squeeze: A Trivia Scavenger Hunt at the Liberty Science Center

If a trivia quiz and a scavenger hunt had a baby…

…it would look a lot like this unusual game. Here’s how it works: each question challenges your team to answer a trivia question—about movies, music, history, sports, science, books, and more—and that answer becomes a crucial clue to answering a question about an exhibit in the museum. If you like pub quizzes, you’ll love this hunt.

How might your knowledge come in handy?

  • Knowing the trouble with Tribbles on Star Trek could help you discover the worm that Christopher Columbus found quite “boring.”
  • Remembering the other name for London’s Millennium Wheel could held you find out what turns a frown upside down in an exhibit with a big brain.
  • Teaming up to recall a sporting Bear nicknamed for a kitchen appliance could expose unsavory symptoms you’d get from fowl play.

You can use your smartphone if you get stuck, but keep in mind that teams that get the answers faster will get more questions and score more points.
