The Impossible Science Festival is a unique, hands-on, interactive event that explores the science behind the seemingly impossible. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn how to turn objects invisible, explore levitation, play with the science of mind control, discover impossible figures and even expereince virtual reality. This event will examine the question "what is possible?" and use visual and interactive experiences to show how the seemingly impossible can become possible through curiosity and knowledge.

"The goal of the Impossible Science Festival is to promote education through curiosity," said Jason Latimer, host and designer of the Impossible Science Festival. "By exploring subjects that seem impossible but showing how they can be made possible through science, visitors will have a memorable, hands-on learning experience that will blow their minds!"
