For those new to Science and Engineering Night, here’s what it’s all about:

Science and Engineering Night is an interactive, kid-propelled, noncompetitive evening of science fun, driven by the notion that every child who has ever asked “why?” is an innate scientist. Kids (working alone or with siblings or friends – just have at least one adult) can do an experiment (e.g. how does temperature affect how well popcorn pops?) or build a gadget (e.g. a periscope or balloon rocket). The only requirement is that it fit on half a tabletop, and that there be some kind of written explanation of the science behind it – a poster, a drawing, etc. Do not get hung up on complexity or sophistication! We want kid-quality work!

On the evening of January 26, participants will set up at tables in the gym. Mr. Nardelli and several teachers will emcee. In past years there has been a wonderful ‘buzz’ as people milled around each table, asking questions and trying out the hands-on demonstrations.
This is also EASY ON PARENTS! You can design your own project, or choose from our “cookbook” of pre-selected projects, each with step-by-step instructions and an explanation of the science involved.

QUESTIONS / REGISTRATION: Registration deadline is Friday, January 19, 2018. To register, fill out the GoogleDocs registration form: https://goo.gl/forms/PDhwh9psYzpyKRUs1
