Jack-O-Lantern Lane is a newly-designed, family-friendly walk-through Halloween experience that excites, delights, but doesn’t fright. Dr. Frankenstein has moved into town and he needs your help to bring science to life! To get to Frankenstein’s Lab, stroll through Jack-O-Lantern Lane and explore the giant Newton’s Cradle, the science of the color-changing Circuit House, and more exhibit stations. At the end of your journey, use your knowledge to help Dr. Frankenstein with his lively experiments, such as FrankenToys, Monster Masks, and more. Before you leave, discover the science behind Dr. Frankenstein’s greatest creation during the It’s Alive! Live Science Show on weekends.

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the retirement of Joe Schoenly, who has brought science to life and lives to science at Da Vinci Science Center for the last nine years. Many of you know Joe as our summer camp coordinator. He has designed and taught many outstanding camp topics, inspired countless students to pursue careers in STEM fields, and, above all else, has helped our visitors to see just how fun science is! His creativity, dedication, and sense of humor will be greatly missed. We wish him well in the next stage of his life, and hope he returns to visit often.
