Bring the kids for Family Discovery Night

October 11, 2012

Beloit College families are invited to learn side-by-side with Kerry scientists and Beloit faculty in a new event: Family Discovery Night.

Sponsored by Kerry and held at the Center for the Sciences, the event takes place Friday, Nov. 2 and will feature hands-on activities, food, prizes, and an open observatory.

Beginning at 6 p.m., families will enjoy tours and participate in laboratory exhibitions with Kerry employees and faculty and students. They will collect “passport stamps” as they discover how the brain works, watch marshmallow animals joust, and engage with robots. The evening wraps up with an open observatory (weather permitting) from 8 p.m. – 9 p.m. when guests will be able to gaze at the stars from the Science Center rooftop, using telescopes and aided by expert guidance.

The event is free and open to the public, so spread the word to relatives, neighbors, and friends.

Family Discovery Night is part of a new community science education program between Beloit College and Kerry.
