KNOW YOUR SIZE!
If you only plan to have 200 people, you probably can't afford that $10,000 guest speaker.
Family Science Day is a public outreach event designed to educate and inspire K-8 students in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). This family-friendly event encourages scientific discovery through hands-on activities, challenges, and demonstrations while providing the opportunity to learn about scientific careers from actual research scientists and science educators.
