Pit old school detective methods against new school spy tactics on Feb. 8
Nashville, Tenn., Jan. 29, 2017—Sherlock Holmes and James Bond have been household names for generations. Whether they are fighting for their lives against a mysterious foe or relaxing with a shaken martini or a freshly tamped pipe, these two hard-hitting crime solvers captivate and excite audiences young and old.
At Adventure Science Center’s (ASC) next adults-only Way Late Play Date on Thursday, Feb. 8, guests will journey to the scene of the crime to explore exciting science inspired by these two iconic characters.
