Family Science Nights in the Florida Keys are back! FIU’s Center for Coastal Oceans Research will be hosting this fun-filled family friendly event at Ocean Reef Academy on March 14th at 5:00 p.m.

Family Science Nights bring together researchers and students from FIU, non-profit organizations, and environmental groups to connect them with the Florida Keys community. As part of our mission, we hope to ignite a love for science at a young age by showcasing research and science organizations in an engaging, hands-on, and memorable way. At these events we spark curiosity, inspire through science and discovery, and encourage learners of all ages to share in our love for science.
