We’re bringing Family SciFest to you!

Science demonstrations, STEM activities and awe-inspiring information: These are the things that make Family SciFest one of the Museum’s longest running and most popular events. We’re so happy to be able to bring you Virtual Family SciFest with some of our regular SciFest friends and some new participants as well.
