Santa Ana, CA / Sylmar, CA – Calling all ghouls and goblins, it’s a new kind of back to school! This year’s Spooky Science will be hosting the Monster Academy where students will learn hair-raising science lessons from some of the world’s most famous monsters. Learning experiences will include:
- Visit Frankenstein’s laboratory where he’s sure to spark amazement with his new Van de Graaff generator!

- Join in on the Monster Academy Talent Show where four famous monsters (Dracula, Frankenstein, Ghost, and Mummy) will be showcasing their hidden science talents!
- Skeleton assembly table

The Monster Academy will also feature a “day-scare” learning center designed exclusively for teaching junior monsters what it takes for school success. Activities will be focusing on creative play, shapes, and colors as part of our Early Learning Core Initiative and electricity, chemistry, and optical illusions as part of our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Proficiency Core Initiative.
Weekends through the month of October will also feature the “Monster Mash Costume Parade” where guests dressed up in costume will be lead around Discovery Cube on a fun parade!
