Two years is too long to wait for the next Mad Scientist Ball (MSB), so Sci-Port is bringing you the madness associated with this epic event in 2015! Some might call the Ball legendary, and so are we. MSB: Monsters, Myths and Legends materializes at Sci-Port on Saturday, March 7 at 7 p.m.

From modern day movie monsters to ancient mythological creatures to the local legend of the Caddo Lake Creature… we will feature the most renowned of them in this monstrously fun night.  Of course, Sci-Port will use science to dispel everything you thought you knew, separating folklore from facts.  

We are honored to lead this herculean effort to raise money that will bolster informal STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) education opportunities in our community. In fact, 100% of the sponsorships support Sci-Port’s hands-on exhibits and curriculum-based programs.  Research shows that an enjoyable trip to a science center or museum is what sparks an interest in STEAM careers. And, for many students in our area, a classroom trip to Sci-Port is their first exposure to a museum-style environment ― and the first “spark” they experience.

All sponsorships include a table at the Ball, entry into Sci-Port’s newest traveling exhibition, “How to Make a Monster,” recognition for supporting educational programs and more! Sponsorships range from $1,500 - $10,000. The most legendary sponsors will have roaming monsters and gods who will keep your drinks filled and monitor your auction items for you throughout the night!  

Whether you come as a monster, mythological creature or mere mortal is up to you; but, we’re ready to unleash the monsters and the madness.
