Blockbuster comic-book movies from DC and the Marvel Universe have made superheroes more popular than ever.
Kids can learn about the real-world science behind some of their favorite superheroes (and villains!) during Superhero Science Day on Saturday, May 18, at the Center for Earth & Space Science Education at Tyler Junior College.
The Dallas-based Perot Museum of Nature and Science will present 1 and 3 p.m. showings of the program, which explores how real-world topics such as matter and energy, magnetism and electricity, and properties of light have influenced fictional super powers seen in comics and movies.
The event is included at no additional cost with paid admission to TJC’s Sportsology exhibit, which is $3 per person for all ages. TJC science center members are admitted at no charge.
Tickets are available now, and advanced reservations are recommended since seating is limited and offered on a first-come first-serve basis. Timed tickets are required for entry into Superhero Science.
