ROCKFORD - Children are invited to join a gathering of superheroes and princesses from 6-8:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Discovery Center Museum, 711 N. Main St., Rockford at "Supertastic Capes and Sparkles."

An Arabian princess and spider hero will be on hand to meet and greet, offer photo opportunities and sign autographs. Guests can come in costume and bring their imagination for make-believe experiences that use real math and science.

Among the many activities and demonstrations that will take place, kids can explore the physics behind super powers as they lift their parent with one hand or get a grip that sticks to the wall, create a cape or crown, play in the snow in winter and find a hero in the night sky during a planetarium show.

Admission is $15 per person for the public and $7 per person for members.
