Welcome to a trivia night based on the magical place on Earth. Whether it’s classic movies, park history, or wacky facts, our Disney trivia will keep you on your toes. Teams (maximum of 6 people per team) are invited to come nerd out with us and decide once and for all who's Lady and the Champ. The winning team will receive one $25 gift certificate to the center, good for admission, workshops, gift shop purchases, planetarium events, and more. Have a drink, come up with a ridiculous team name (Walt Quizney, anyone?), and start the weekend off right with a fun trivia challenge. Hakuna Matata, friends.

The Women in Science Conference is a celebration of women in all STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) professions. Hosted by the Emerald Coast Science Center and BAE Systems, the evening will consist of inspirational presentations from professional women in STEM careers followed by a panel discussion where the audience can engage with speakers and ask questions. Proceeds benefit the Girls Empowered with Math and Science (GEMS) program held by the Emerald Coast Science Center.
All ages are welcome, especially middle school and high school students looking to discover careers in STEM. Guests will have a chance to mingle with the speakers and other guest professionals. Light refreshments provided.
This year, our speakers will discuss groundbreaking, memorable moments from their careers, how they have overcome challenges as women in STEM, and offer advice to young women interested in STEM careers and educations. All speakers will be a part of a panel discussion toward the end of the event to take questions from the audience. This is an excellent event for students of all ages and genders to receive firsthand advice and information from local STEM professionals.
