The science department is hosting the annual Family Science Night on campus Tuesday from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m in the cafeteria with dozens of student created projects meant to teach children about different topics. In addition, families in attendance will have the chance to win a family four pass to Hawaiian Falls.

“Families can expect basically, games and science, designed to teach science or students are going to be able to build things or take part of the science administration and learn some science along the way,” organizer and science teacher Kenric Davies said. “Everything from physics, chemistry, biology, environmental science is there. It’s fun, and it’s free.”

For many students, presenting at Family Science Night is the final step of completing end of year projects following AP tests.

“Kids get to build things and experience science in a kind of a different way,” Davies said. “As the teacher is I’m just kind of facilitating ideas. I’ve been putting together where the booths are going to go, what they need, what kind of space requirements and getting the map and stuff together, but it’s been just a lot of facilitation for the students to actually put this on.”

Junior Anushka Sinha is presenting her AP Environmental Science project with her group at the event, aiming to combat plastic pollution.

“For family science night for APES, we decided to collect different types of plastic pollution around the school,” Sinha said. “We decided to make a penguin and turtle out of that. so it’s really engaging for kid
