Theory 2018
July 27
8 p.m. – 1 a.m.

Join Pacific Science Center as we dance, drink and discover – the second annual Theory 2018 is Seattle’s premier outdoor party of the summer.

Experiment, test and discover the quintessential elements of the Pacific Northwest with a night of craft cocktails, wine and beer under our iconic arches in the beautiful summer sun. Stop by each of our eight bars – a different signature drink at every one – and learn the science behind them. Grab a mic and perform your best karaoke paired with a live laser light show or roll up your sleeves and build your own creation in Tinker Tank. Take our word for it: this is one party you will not want to miss!

Pacific Science Center invites you to party with a purpose; ticket sales go directly to supporting informal science education and enabling access for all. Join us for Theory 2018 as we dance, drink and discover, all in the name of science!
