Family Science evenings offer an opportunity for K-12 students and their parents to enter the realm of science and engineering together, such as the father and son seen here using the Center's Exploring the Nanoworld 'nanoscale' probe. Families interact with selected science ideas and experiments taken from refined content developed for K-12 outreach. This program, which is based on the successful existing national model of Iridescent, affords an increased social interaction within and across families, an underpinning strength that increases interest in and communication about STEM topics.
