    We are bringing sweet, sour, and science together for one grand night of eating and exploration. All of your favorite local food vendors will be on hand with samples while our friends from Duke, UNC, and NC State share the latest in food science research. Chat with local chefs and explore demonstrations and experiments on everything from what happens to your brain on sugar to how your genes affect your perception of flavor.

    Still feel hungry after all those food samples? Hit the food trucks out front then burn off a few calories playing in two floors of interactive science exhibits. Food trucks are for additional purchase.

    To top it off, money raised from this event helps fund our education programs for students and families. Supporting science education was never so much fun!

    *All tastings included with admission
