Funding from the Duke Energy Foundation allows NCSciFest staff to produce STEM activities and resources for use by elementary schools across the state. Traditionally, schools are encouraged and supported to use the resources to organize and hold a family science night during the month of April, bringing their families together as a community to explore the amazing world of science as part of the NCSciFest. The 2021 Kit is designed to offer flexibility in light of the COVID-19 situation. Selected schools will receive a kit with all supplies needed to host a fun, hands-on science event at your location for up to 200 participants. The Festival provides the materials, activities and guidance - you provide the leadership, volunteers and venue.
Please discuss the program and application with school administrators and staff before applying. If you have questions, please contact the NCSciFest team by email (email@example.com) or phone (919-962-3274).
Application deadline is August 21, 2020. Selected schools will be notified by August 28 and are expected to confirm their acceptance of the award by September 4.
