Pennypickle's Workshop is delighted to announce the celebration of its 15th anniversary by offering the Professor's Amazing Science Carnival, which will be held from June 22 through June 30 during regular session times. Join us to have fun playing with science indoors and outdoors with hands-on activities, experiments, demos, and surprises!

Please note that admission prices during Pennypickle's Amazing Science Carnival will be $10 per person and $5 for members.

SPOILER ALERT - Professor Pennypickle also has a HUGE surprise in store for his visitors as he reveals his new Adventure Room exhibit... he and Beaker have taken the lead from their good friend Doctor Who and invented their own version of the TARDIS. It's called the SATTA (Space and Time Travel Apparatus), which can whisk them AND YOU into who knows where in space and time. You could end up on the moon. Or somewhere in the galaxy.

By the way, the Professor's little sidekick Beaker has his own nano-version, called the SATTA-LITE. You'll have to see if you can spot it somewhere in the Workshop... it's kind of glitchy and we never know where it'll end up. :-)
