Wow in the World Pop-Up Party: Laboratory of Bad Ideas

The Wow in the World Pop Up Party: Laboratory of Bad Ideas scheduled on Sept. 4 at Keller Auditorium has been moved to the Newmark Theatre, located inside the Antoinette Hatfield Hall at 1111 SW Broadway Ave. The venue/location has changed, however, the date remains the same.

We are working on moving current ticket holders to new seats in the Newmark Theatre and will send new tickets when moves are complete.

The Wow in the World Pop-Up Party brings this insanely popular podcast Wow in the World OUT in the world where they weave STEM-themed interactive games and foley infused comedy skits between science themed songs from the Pop Ups (three-time Grammy nominees and creators of the Wow in the World theme song). This highly interactive show will engage curious kids and their grown-ups in science, wonder, and music and leave them all saying "WOW!"

The award-winning Tinkercast Original series, Wow in the World, is the #1 podcast for curious kids and their grown-ups. Hosts Mindy Thomas and Guy Raz invite you into their make-believe world as they share the latest real stories in science, technology, and innovation. With immersive sound design, and a cast of eccentric characters, each narrative episode is a scientific adventure you can see with your eyes closed! A humor-filled whirlwind of fact, fiction, and full-on WOW!

  • Premium Seating
