Family Science night is a MES event that occurs once a year in which students attend 2-3 short presentations from STEAM professionals from varying fields. Can computers make music? Do worms smell? What does touching a brain feel like? Can a robot play Frisbee? Find out the answers to all of these questions and more at MES Family Science Night!
