Family Science Night

Family Science Night to be held on Tuesday, April 2nd, 2024!

Family Science Night, also referred to as the Science Spring Spectacular, has been wowing families with children of all ages for more than two decades! This year’s event is an in-person event and will be held in the beautiful Sonderegger Science Center on the Edgewood campus.  This year’s event will feature more than 20 hands-on, science based projects/stations for kids (and parents) to explore.

And, best of all- this is a completely FREE event. The event will run from 6:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Parking is free on the Edgewood Campus.

Each year, Family Science continues to grow. Many families who participate are from the Madison area, but we’ve heard of families driving in from as far away as Janesville and Portage. Projects & science stations have included topics such as fermentation (think Kombucha), fun with liquid nitrogen (shattering roses and marshmallows), learning how your eyes work, fossil exploration and a much, much more. From biology to physics – Family Science Night has something for everyone.
