Family Science Events

Involving parents in science activities helps them to become more interested in science. When students see their parents learning along with them or showing an interest in what they have learned, the parents become “adult role models in science”. These events also enable students to share their learning and become the “experts”, sharing their learning with adults and peers.

Family Science Nights/Days highlight the work of scientists in the community. Presentations are interactive and hands-on, engaging the whole family in the process of science.

These events also provide a forum for students to share what they have learned in science. ARMS works with teachers to involve all students in class projects or small group projects connected to the science curriculum. Individual students with special interests in science are matched with volunteer mentors to guide them in the development of projects.
