Second Museum Afterparty Will Be Hot — and Cold

On the heels of its sold-out 21-and-over Afterparty — Making Waves — in April, the recently opened MOXI, The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation will host another Afterparty, this one dubbed Fire and Ice, 7-10 p.m. Friday, June 9, at 125 State St.

MOXI is a family-centered museum whose goal is to spark learning through interactive experiences in science and creativity.

The earlier Afterparty event drew more than 400 people who enjoyed wine, beer and empanadas, and participated in games and activities throughout the museum.

“We’re so pleased the Afterparty at MOXI was so well received by the community,” said Ron Skinner, MOXI education director.

“We wanted to open up the museum to an adults-only audience, and challenge them to play with our exhibits and engage in different interactive activities.

"Each Afterparty will have its own unique flavor," he said. "Our first one was all about waves, the next one is all about fire and ice, all things hot and cold, and how they impact the world we live in.”
Tickets for the June 9 event are on sale at moxi.org/afterparty. Advance tickets cost $25 and include guests’ first drink. If the event does not sell out in advance, tickets will be available at the door for $30.

Afterparty events, which are held quarterly at the new science museum, are supported by JPMorgan Chase & Co.
“With the region forecasted to continue its growth as a hub for education and technology JPMorgan Chase is thrilled to sponsor Afterparty at MOXI and help pull the curtain back on a unique and fun science museum experience,” said David Catalfimo of J.P. Morgan Securities in Santa Barbara.

“We hope these evenings will inspire curiosity in adults seeking lifelong learning opportunities,” he said.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
