Every few months or so, the Perot Museum of Dallas Texas offers "Social Science" events - from 7-11 pm, for adults only, ages 21+. From the Perot's website, "Looking for something new to do on date night? Overdue for a evening out with friends? Social Science events transform the Museum into an adults-only hangout complete with innovative experiments, dynamic performances, engaging discussions, amazing inventions, and intriguing interactions — all specifically designed for adults. Roam the Museum in a kid-free environment with a signature cocktail or craft beer in hand. This event sells out quickly, so don't wait to reserve your tickets. "
There's always lots of neat things to see and do - these events are lots of fun! Perot asked ADROIT this year to exhibit and teach origami to guests at a Social Science event on April 27, 2018. ADROIT Members had a blast teaching and exhibiting origami!
We displayed several models and tessellations and taught a few simple dinosaur models. People were fascinated by the exhibition and loved to learn how to fold one of their own. We had crowds around our table and taught nearly one hundred people by the end of the event! We even taught for an extra hour. The Perot was great - they bought us all the paper we needed and set up our tables and TV monitor. It was a great experience.
