Family Science Night at Explora

Family Science Night (FSN) at Explora:

Explora hosts a special family science night for all Title I elementary and charter schools.   Explora extends their hours from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm to accommodate Explora nights.  Thirty-six nights and seventy-two slots are available for schools to sign up.  This program is funded by APS Title I Department and includes refreshments and transportation

The focus of FSNs is to enrich Title I families’ experience while attending this event.  Explora and APS are working together to accomplish the following:

  • Increase family engagement with learning science
  • Improve attitudes toward learning and science
  • Increase awareness of scientific phenomena and processes

Science Explorer for Families (SEF) Events at your school:

SEF events provides an opportunity for parents to become more involved in their children's science education in the following ways:

  • Parents and children (pre K-5th grade) select self-directed task cards to work on together
  • These activities demystify science education for children and their parents and enhance partnerships between home and school
  • Family Science Nights are held at elementary and middle schools throughout the district. Students and their parents are invited to attend
