Pirates: Lost at Sea
Ahoy! People don’t just build on land. They build on water, too! Set sail with us on a thrilling action-packed adventure about a crew of quirky pirates marooned on a desert island. With mutiny and high-tide looming, they must rescue their salty captain and find a way to build a new ship before all hope is lost … at sea!

Throughout the story, volunteers from the audience will help us explore the incredible science behind clouds, combustion, air pressure and more. Do not miss this refreshing nautical tale with a twist!
