On Oct 31, 2015 Discovery Place invited the families from the Oaklawn Language Academy to enjoy a free day at Discovery Place. Since event was held on Halloween day the children came dressed up in costumes and went trick or treating throughout the museum. From 1:00-3:00 pm the museum had extra activities for just the Oaklawn families. Four tables that displayed a sampling of hands-on activities from the APEX Science curriculum were set up on the museum's third level for the Oaklawn families. Then as a big finish everyone had a chance to try Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream.
