What is a Thorp Science Night?
A Thorp Science Night is an event at your school where students, teachers and caregivers engage in a variety of hands-on science and engineering activities. It’s a great way to bring families together to explore the amazing world of science. Funded by an anonymous donor, Thorp Science Nights are named in honor of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Chancellor Holden Thorp.
For 2013, North Carolina Science Festival has completed the selection process and provided Thorp Science Night kits for the selected schools.
If you were not selected as a Thorp Science Night site, you can still conduct a Thorp Science Night event at your school by providing your own materials. Click here to find the downloadable Thorp Science Night planning guide, instruction sheets, posters, a supply list and more.
Schools throughout North Carolina are hosting Thorp Science Night events in 2013! Here’s a map so you can see all the locations.
