PREPARE TO GET MESSY ON NEW YEAR’S DAY AT THE SCIENCE CENTER VISITORS ARE INVITED TO START 2020 WITH MESSFEST TRADITION



MessFest, Carnegie Science Center’s one-of-a-kind tradition to kick off the New Year, is back! Free with general admission, the 14th annual messy celebration returns on Wed., Jan. 1 and features the slimiest, yuckiest, and gooiest activities for visitors of all ages.

From 10 am to 5 pm, visitors get hands-on (literally) with the gooey substance Oobleck, share their creative side with finger painting, and enjoy a pudding “Pi” eating contest. The Egg Drop activity invites visitors to engineer a package for raw eggs that will protect their “egg-stronauts” as the eggs hurtle over a two-story drop. It’s fun for the whole family and, best of all, parents don’t have to clean up after their kids!

Visitors are advised: You WILL get messy, so don’t dress up! Along with activity tables, visitors can experience high-energy, grossly entertaining programs in the Science Center’s BodyStage, presented by Allegheny Health Network.

MessFest is presented by PPG and sponsored by WISH 99.7.
