Families and members of the public are invited to Montana State University for Family Science Night, a free evening of educational activities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The event, which aims to help both kids and adults learn more about science in a fun and easy-to-understand format, will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 27, in the Strand Union Building ballrooms. At the event, MSU students and faculty will showcase their research through educational hands-on activities and a variety of engaging demonstrations and experiments. Visitors can stop in at any time, take part in dozens of free activities and circulate at their own pace. All ages are welcome; children must be accompanied by an adult.
Topics explored at the event in previous years have ranged from extreme gravity physics to microbiology to nanotechnology, a field in which scientists and engineers study and manipulate matter at the atomic and molecular scale to develop disease-fighting drugs, alternative energy solutions, ultra-strong sports equipment and many other applications. MSU Family Science Day is hosted by MSU Academic Technology and Outreach with support from Montana NSF EPSCoR and the Montana Nanotechnology Facility.
