Science Night is an interactive, kid-focused event, including:
- Student-based projects (created outside of the classroom) where students can explore and share what they think is fun and exciting about science. (Not a competition!)
- Adult-scientist led stations that include fun, hands-on exhibits and/or educational materials or a poster session about a field or area of interest.
Some of the past community presentations involved icedrilling for kids, UW IceCube Particle DECO app for community and parents, hands-on demos about vision, reptiles and amphibians, Physics Rube Goldberg Machines, insects, the human brain, microbes in our environment, tree inventory in the Hill Farms Neighborhood, and a 3D printer.
Sign up forms for students and adults will be available in early 2016, but it's never too early to start thinking about your next science project!
