Academy Winter Games: Cockroach Speed Skating

Thursday, February 15, 2018

11:00 AM-12:00 PM

Let the Games begin! Our animal athletes have been practicing their cold-weather sports. They are set to compete at the Academy as the world turns its attention to the human games in South Korea. Join us for daily shows featuring bobsledding, ice dancing, curling, speed skating, and hockey. We’re even bringing out our ever-popular roach races! Everything is free with admission and registration is not required.

The popular, crowd-pleasing roach races are coming early this year! This time the roaches will race to victory through a winter wonderland as we chat about species differences, adaptations, and more. Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind auditorium show.
