You've Never Seen Science Like This Before!
The MES Family Science Night event is a set of entertaining and informative nights of science hosted virtually by volunteer professionals from the community. Family Science Night sessions are an opportunity for the entire family to have hands-on exposure to science together. We look forward to offering MES another fun experience of diverse scientific explorations to engage budding learners of all types!
