The Franklin Institute will host the Science After Hours event "Party Like a Rock Star" on Tuesday, March 8.

The Franklin Institute will host the next Science After Hours event on March 8. The theme for the night is "Party Like a Rock Star." During the 21-plus event, guests can grab beer or wine from several cash bars within the museum and learn science that relates to rock n' roll.

The biggest lessons will be in pyrotechnics, because smoke, lights and on-stage fireworks are rock show essentials, and how instruments are designed to produce different sounds.

There will also be a dozen other interactive activities and live demonstrations, as well as a dance party. Live entertainment will be provided by Adam Weiner of the band Low Cut Connie.

Science After Hours events usually meet capacity quickly, so if you're waiting to buy tickets, check in with the event Facebook page to make sure it isn't sold out yet.
