Science Mill plans 'light' Thanksgiving

Feast your eyes on the Spectacular Science of Light during Thanksgiving week at the Science Mill in Johnson City. The hands-on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) museum also will unveil its new exhibit: the 30-foot-tall Light Loom.

The program on light and energy is in celebration of the opening of Lights Spectacular, Johnson City's annual Christmas display, which bathes the courthouse square in more than 2 million twinkling bulbs from Nov. 25, 2022, through Jan. 8, 2023. (NASA even reported seeing it from space!)

The museum's new Light Loom exhibit demonstrates the science behind additive color. Visitors can use the loom's touch-free sensors to control a cord of white light suspended from up high and watch as the rope's motion shows how white light is actually a combination of all colors from the spectrum.

You can learn even more fascinating facts about light and energy during the program. Thanksgiving week hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, Nov. 21-23; 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday-Saturday, Nov. 25-26; and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 27. It is closed on Thanksgiving Thursday.

The Science Mill, 101 Lady Bird Lane in Johnson City, features more than 50 exhibits, a Science and Art Park, an aquaponics greenhouse, a 3D movie theater, a store, and a cafe. Admission is $11 for ages 18-64, $9.50 for ages 3-17, $9 for ages 65 and older, and free for ages 2 and younger.
