A Duke Energy Science Night is a school-based event for students, their parents and caregivers, and their teachers. Together, everyone experiences a variety of hands-on science activities. It can be held after school, in the evening, or on a weekend.
For selected schools, Duke Energy Science Night kits will include:
- A planning guide (everything schools need to know to organize this event!)
- An activity guide, with instructions for 12 fun, hands-on science activities
- All activity materials needed for 200 participants
- Promotional materials
- Unlimited access to Duke Energy Science Night downloadable materials including video tutorials and email support
Schools throughout North Carolina host Duke Energy Science Nights for their students and families. Duke Energy Science Nights are official events of the North Carolina Science Festival, and they are a great way to bring families together to explore the amazing world of science!
