Museum of Discovery Educator to be Featured on ‘Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’

We have some big news!

Tonight, Kevin Delaney, director of visitor experience at the Museum of Discovery, will be a featured performer on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” at 10:30 p.m. You’ll see the same sort of “Awesome Science” experiments he performs for Arkansas school children every week at the museum, only this time Fallon will be his laboratory assistant. Cool!

Delaney was chosen after “Tonight Show” producers reached out to educators at more than 50 museums across the country. Based on a video the museum submitted, Kevin was selected to appear on a Feb. 10 “test show” before Fallon debuted as the new host on Feb. 17. Producers shared their decision for Kevin to be the show’s science expert soon thereafter, but the date for his first appearance was confirmed just a few days ago.

There will be a watch party 9:30-11:30 p.m. tonight at the Ron Robinson Theater, 100 River Market Ave., Little Rock. If you’re not a museum member, donor or volunteer, then enter the Museum of Discovery’s contest to be one of 50 museum friends who’ll join the crew for the party. Deadline for entry is noon Friday (May 2) and all entries will be submitted via Facebook and Twitter.

Information about how to enter is on their Facebook page. They’ll announce the winners Friday afternoon on Facebook and Twitter!
