Family Science Nights offer a unique experience for your school’s families and teachers to visit the museum and spark lifelong interest in science. This exclusive event for your school is designed to foster community between teachers, parents and students, and strengthen parent and family involvement in science exploration and discovery. Your school will explore our popular exhibit halls, as well as our Physics Lab and Life Science Lab, engaging in exciting hands-on activities. An OMSI specialist will work with your school or PTA to customize the event for your group, answer questions and tend to the logistics.
