Special Offer Brings Sports, Science Together

Are you ready for the convergence of sports, physics, and fun?

The Big Brain Club is proud to announce a very special event on Saturday, March 8: Get Your Nerd On Day with the Colorado Avalanche!

This is an exclusive offer to receive enormously discounted tickets to the Avs game versus the St. Louis Blues . . . plus cool, interactive science experiments courtesy of the brilliant minds from the University of Denver Physics Department, and special VIP access to the Avs’ ice guru!

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Pre-Game Activities – The Big Brain Club will host an exclusive group of students, teachers, parents (and YOU) at the Pepsi Center beginning at 10:00 a.m. The DU Physics Department will be on hand with some mind-blowing experiments — including liquid nitrogen demonstrations, thermal expansion/contraction activities, and several ice-related experiments — for our group only. (Yes, they’re perfectly safe.)
  • VIP Presentation – Tony Kreusch, the Avs’ head ice technician, will give a special pre-game presentation about the process of creating and caring for NHL-quality hockey ice. Want to know how the zamboni works? Why the ice is less than an inch thick? How they convert the floor from hardwoods to hockey rink? Tony is happy to answer your questions.
  • Game Time – At 1:00 p.m., the puck drops. The Avs are graciously extending an offer for ridiculously cheap tickets, with proceeds coming back to The Big Brain Club. Get upper level seats for just $25 (regularly $41+), and lower level / club seats for just $50 (regularly $95+). During the game, the DU Physics team will be stationed throughout the Pepsi Center, answering questions and conducting experiments.
