Science Night Out

Fernbank Science Center is proud to announce the 17th season of this very popular program for young students. Each Science Night Out is an evening packed with hands-on STEM activities led by Fernbank scientists, LINKS Robotics high school students, and mentors of the Fernbank LINKS Robotics team. Typical comments from previous years were, “This is so cool!” "Mom, I don't want to leave!" and "When is the next one?"
