Family Science Night

  • 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? Can kids be climate super heroes? How does Spot It work? What do farts look like?? Find out the answers to all of these questions and more at MES Family Science Night!

    UPDATE: Student registration is open now, closing Sunday, January 20 at midnight

    First: Review our Session Lineup and choose your top six favorites. This is the only place to view full session descriptions and presenter names.

    Next: Register your family to attend one night, together.

    You can explore our list of hands-on STE(A)M sessions and tell us the ones that interest you most. After registration closes, you’ll get a paper FSN 2019 ticket in your take-home folder to bring with you the night of the event, showing which sessions to attend.

    See you at Family Science Night!
