One of the ways for families to become familiar with science is through Family Science Nights. These fun-filled evenings provide an environment and structure where families can comfortably explore, experiment and talk about science. Families that participate in these evenings have a greater understanding of the importance of science in their child’s life. Parents and teachers can then work together to improve attitudes towards science and encourage students to build a strong scientific foundation that will serve them well in upper grades and college.
Each grade level will have a science night during the school year.
