Family Science Night @ Charles Drew Elementary April 7, 6:00 PM 2015 at 50 Pomona Avenue, San Francisco, CA, 94124

This is the fourth and last location for the Exploratorium Family Science Night series.

I personally like working with kids and the field of Engineering for obvious reasons ;)

Activities such as these combine these two passions of mine. If you share this interest, activities like these are prefect for you!

Exploratorium and SHPE-SFBA appreciates any help. These 1hr events are fast-paced and fun!

Hope you can make it out and please let me know if any questions come up.

Family Science Night @ Bret Harte Elementary March 26, 6:00 PM 2015 at 1035 Gilman Avenue, San Francisco, CA, 94124

This is the third Family Science Night location the Exploratorium has picked for the 2014-2015 school year.

Activities normally cover spectroscopes, sound sandwiches, buzzing bees, gyrocopters, and even slime!

Never gets boring seeing the faces of kids light up with these cool mini-activities.

As a reminder, the Exploratorium staff normally takes the lead. We normally work directly with the kids assisting them with these experiments. Lots of kids and their parents attend these nights. The interest is definitely there.

Hope to see you there!
