The goal of the Family Science program is to engage children and adults in exploring science together. Each Family Science session focuses on a specific scientific concept, to be explored with hands-on experiments. To support the learning at home, each Family Science program participant receives a custom booklet with extension activities and further information.
This program is made possible thanks to generous support from Con Edison. Program participants will be invited to take an anonymous, voluntary survey upon completion of the Family Science program. Data from this survey will be used for grant report purposes and to improve program quality.
