Over 100 young students turned out to Somerset Academy for Family Science Night, hosted by the School of Environment, Arts and Society.

Family Science Night is a community-building event intended to be an exciting and fun night of various science activities that engage students, parents and school faculty and staff. These events bring together labs, university clubs and local science-based organizations to provide fun and interactive activities for students and their families.

Members of FIU’s BBC Science Club, Marine Community and Behavioral Ecology Lab, Geology Club, Astronomy Club, Society for the Advancement of Women in STEM (AWSTEM), Society of Physics, Exercise Science, and Institute of Water and Environment (InWE) hosted tables with hands-on activities for kids and their families to explore the different science topics.

The next Family Science Night will be Thursday night, November 8, at Griffin Elementary School. Want us to come to your school? Our educators and scientists can bring this special event to you, feel free to contact our Environmental Education & Outreach Coordinator, Shalimar Moreno.
