Family Science Night

Do you miss out on Parents’ Night Out because you’re an adult? Then come with your family for some experimenting and exploring at Pacific Science Center. Visit our exhibits after hours, perform hands-on experiments and learn while you play as a family. In each session, your family will travel between stations focusing on a different science topic. You can make memories with your little one all while learning and doing science.

Upcoming Sessions:

March 3: Kitchen Creations
Does your child want to help out in the kitchen or do they just want to lick the spoon? Inspire your child to want to spend time in the kitchen by doing some hands-on experiments using kitchen ingredients. Write secret messages to each other using a sour fruit, knead dough to see how well you can develop gluten and test your nose. End the night by making a delicious creamy treat with a super cold liquid you can’t find in your own kitchen.

April 28: Rolling Along!
Roll, roll, roll your car, quickly down the ramp! Work with your family to race marbles down a track, build a mini roller coaster and measure the speed of a car on a slope. Experiment with how the slope of a ramp affects how fast a car will go, and make your own marble run out of recycled materials to take home. Wheels, inclined planes and axles will play a big role in a fun evening of the science of construction.
