Staging Family Science Nights book cover (Graphic: Business Wire)

The book shows that family science nights can bring a community together while fostering a positive attitude about science and science education. Suggested activities range from creating color slime to competing in a Bubble Olympics. The activities provide learners with quality experiences they can use to construct important knowledge later, to discover an interesting new area of science, or to re-engage with forgotten content.

Staging Family Science Nights is designed to be a crowd-pleaser, whether teachers are looking for new ideas for an established event or planning their first one. The book can also be used by scout troops, homeschoolers, libraries, summer camps, and museums. It’s also flexible enough to be used by students of all ages. Adults will enjoy the science nights, too!
