Meet us for a fun, family-friendly, hands-on science event for all ages, led by MagLab scientists.

Where: Leroy Collins Leon County Public Library 200 W Park Ave
Admission: Free
Note: There will NOT be a Science Night in December

Every Science Night we explore a different, exciting topic, such as electricity, magnets, chemistry or light, with a hands-on activity that encourages participants to:

  • Make connections between science and their everyday world.
  • Ask and answer questions.
  • Think scientifically.
  • Gain a sense of curiosity.
  • Learn from simple, inventive science activities that can mostly be done at home with basic materials.
