Nerf gaming and special photo op/autograph session with SoonerCon’s featured science guest, Dr. Lonnie Johnson, will begin 3:30 p.m. Saturday, June 8th. A bona fide “rocket scientist,” Dr. Johnson has just one mission—to ensure the world has enough energy for a prosperous future. Although he has devoted his life to solving some of the world’s most complex technological problems, he is best known for his widely popular invention, the Super Soaker water gun. Dr. Johnson is a prolific inventor and holds more than 100 patents, the vast majority of which are energy-related.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the Johnson STEM Activity Center in Dr. Johnson’s hometown, Atlanta, GA. Learn more at

Nerf War Details

Saturday, June 8th

Starting at 3:30pm

Game Objective

Knock down as many of the other team’s targets within the game time as possible. The team that knocks down the most targets wins.


  • All players must wear eye protection.
  • No running. This is a relatively small nerf arena, so there is no reason to rush.
  • Players must use the blaster that is included with the fundraiser for this event.
  • Hit by a Nerf Dart? If a player is hit by a nerf dart, they must return to the respawn area for their team before they are allowed to fire their blaster again. We suggest holding your blaster upside down over your head while you return to the respawn area. This will tell other players to stop pelting you with darts until you are back in the game.
  • No blocking target tables. Players are not allowed to stand directly in front of the target tables.
  • Don’t harass other players. Be awesome to each other. We are all here to have fun. Let’s act like it.

Dr. Johnson’s Role

Dr. Johnson will be a neutral force in this game. He will be able to take whichever side he feels needs moral support and change teams at will.
