Family Science Nights with the Perot Museum - PlayGround
Developing and hosting an Open House or STEM Night can be an overwhelming task. The Perot Museum can help! Our Education Team can bring the museum to your campus through one of our TEKS-aligned Family Science Nights. These themed events bring exciting and hands-on activities for students and their families to engage in together. This session with Perot Museum Educators will include sample activities from several of our programs, including our brand new Earth and Space Family Science Night. We will also share activities from a custom Superhero-themed event we have developed for a local elementary school. Stop by to experience our science first hand!
