Denise Matthews, with the Pajarito Environmental Education Center, discussed energy with students and parents at a recent science night for Chamisa Elementary School.

If you are interested in the Museum holding a science night for your school, please contact us.

Throughout the school year, the Museum hosts “science nights,” when we stay open later than usual to accommodate large groups of students and parents from individual schools. While the Museum normally hosts large groups of students during regular hours, these school-night events are designed to provide additional activities and opportunities for parents to engage with their children on science-related topics.

For instance, in February, the Museum hosted more than 160 students and parents from Chamisa Elementary School here in Los Alamos. In addition to having access to Lab scientists and our specially trained Scientist Ambassadors, students prepped for the event by taking swabs around their school to help determine which areas might actually be the dirtiest. The students then got to find the answer to that question during their time at the Museum, learning what area was the “winner.” 

If your school is interested in having a science night at the Museum, send an email to bsm-reservations@lanl.gov for more information.
