Carnegie Science Center
June 16
6—10 p.m.

Dust off that gown or tuxedo and relive high school prom (minus the adolescent awkwardness) at Carnegie Science Center’s 21+ Prom event.

The evening kicks off at 6 p.m. You and your BFFs can take a group photo at the selfie station, but not before decorating a homemade tiara or crowntonight, everyone is a Prom King or Queen.

Grab a beverage at the cash bar then shimmy on up to the Robot Lounge where Pittsburgh DJ Company will be spinning your favorite throwback tunes. If you’re the type that prefers to be the center of attention, check out laser karaoke in the Buhl Planetariumit’s like regular karaoke, but with a live laser light show to accompany your off-key caterwauling.

All four floors of the Science Center will be accessible to guests, and without a crowd of kids around you’ll finally have a chance to take on the Air Hockeybot 1000 1v1.

Up for more shenanigans? Stick around after and for a small additional fee check out one of three laser light shows at the planetarium beginning at 10 p.m., including a Pink Floyd one at midnight. You don’t have to go, but it’d be a lot cooler if you did.
