“Science is best learned hands-on,” says Dr. Wendy Brown, Microbiology Instructor at Danville Area Community College. “Younger children need to be exposed to the fun side of science before they lose the ability to be “wowed” by it.”
For over a decade the Math & Sciences Division, along with a host of volunteers comprised of DACC students, faculty, and staff, have engaged area grade school children and their parents with over 50 different interactive science stations.
While anyone may attend, most activities are geared toward children in grades K-5. More than 500 children and their families have attended each of the previous events.
Family Science Night is FREE and open to the public.
