Family Science Night Danville Area Community College It will run on November 3rd from 5:30pm to 8pm bringing you free family fun that is sure to spark the science enthusiast in you. Dr. Manny Rodriguez and Dr. Wendy Brown join us to walk us through the details of this upcoming event and a preview of the fun activity you can find at DACC this weekend.
Activity: Dry ice bubbles. Using dry ice and some cold chemical glassware, we will make soap bubbles with dry ice steam/smoke inside.
Danville Area Community College is committed to providing high-quality, innovative and accessible educational experiences that meet the lifelong academic, cultural and economic needs of our diverse communities and that is exactly what this upcoming Family Science Night will accomplish.
What you can expect at this event is a free, family-oriented community event featuring over 50 hands-on science activities for all ages. At Mary Miller Gymnasium at Danville Area Community College you will find activities aimed at making science accessible and applicable to everyday life. Activities will cover areas such as astronomy, engineering, zoology, biology and chemistry.
The goal of Family Science Night is for children to experience science, to encourage students to think like scientists. To ask questions, make observations, experiment, and think outside the box. Help them realize that they too can do science; They too can be scholars. Hopefully, when children of all ages do these activities, they realize that what they are doing is not magic…it is not a mystery – it is science – DACC wants to ignite that spark in them and maybe in the future they will also want to study science.
