The Pine Glen PTO and Burlington Science Center teamed up last night to host an incredible evening of fun and learning. Their first ever “Science Night” was a huge success, as over 200 students and family members came out to explore, engage and socialize as a community.

The gymnasium was abuzz with science!

Their were five different activities going on simultaneously over the hour long event, all of which were operated by Science Center student aides and Burlington faculty members past and present. Telescopes were setup outside, fixed towards the waxing gibbous moon as it moved across the partly cloudy sky. Indoors, the Science Center’s StarLab was running short tours of the sky’s constellations while students constructed “straw rockets” and created constellations of their very own. All the while, Miss Pavlicek and students gave presentations and answered questions on a variety of nocturnal animals, including a particularly popular screech owl!

All in all the event was a tremendous hit and the Science Center looks forward to hosting future Science Nights at the other elementary schools in Burlington!

Just a few of our volunteers. We are so lucky to have them!
