Want to bug out and dig into a swarm of creepy crawlies? If so, this Friday Science After Five is for you. The Science Factory's evening foray into different topics features three showings of Bugs! A Rainforest Adventure in the Exploration Dome. Accompanied by narration from Judi Dench, the larger-than-life creatures scuttling across the giant screen are sure to raise some neck hairs. From 5:30 to 7 pm, The Bug People will drop in with live tarantulas and scorpions to discuss the importance of bugs in the environment. Visitors can also check out "Toys: The Inside Story" in the Exhibit Hall. Check out the Science Factory's website at www.sciencefactory.org for details.
