With our welding goggles and fresnel lenses you can turn playa dust into midnight beads of glass with the midday sun. Mount your glass on a pendant at our jewelry making station, and learn about the chemical composition of playa dust, and the glassmaking process. ***Not a rain or shine event! You can melt dust only when the skies are not cloudy. ***

New for 2019: Take a self-guided tour of our sciencey-art posters during the day, or stop by after dark to experience them in retro-projection. Magical metamorphoses transform water in to electricity, rainforests in to tasty burgers, and cats in to quantum superpositions.
