The Art of Science Fiction is Explored at Kidspace Free Family Night

Published : Monday, October 1, 2018 | 5:00 AM

The first Tuesday of each month is Free Family Night at Kidspace Children’s Museum in Pasadena, where the whole family can learn about arts while looking at the diverse cultures and communities present in Greater Los Angeles.

From 4 to 8 p.m. on Free Family Night, admission to the Museum is free during these hours, and you can take part in themed activities facilitated by Kidspace staff.

On Tuesday, October 2, Free Family Night features “The Art of Science Fiction.” You and your kids can join the intergalactic parade, where you dress up as your favorite science character, build your own UFO in the Museum’s Imagination Workshop, and create fantastical alien creatures inspired by the natural world.

At 6 p.m., The Amoeba People – musical ambassadors from the Planet Crouton in the Ensalada Star System (wherever that is!) – perform live music in the Museum’s Stone Hollow Amphitheater.

The Amoeba People – the Meebs – are Mr. Mosley, the team’s Engineer who plays bass, keyboards, kazoo, vocoder, slide whistle, pop gun and bells. Mosley is a fantastic whistler, and an even better dancer. Mr. Jordan is the Navigator and plays drums, percussion, bells, thunder maker, castanets, kazoo, out-of-tune autoharp, xylophone, and tin cans. He also sings and dances with reckless abandon.

Mr. Hedgpeth is the Captain who plays guitar, bells, theremin, banjo, electronic gizmos, kazoo and keyboards. He sings and even dances when the moment is right.

The Amoeba People have “come to Earth to learn about your world, to explore the wonders of its natural history, to study the life which inhabits it, and to parse the mysteries of the human species by learning its dance moves.”
