With a first quarter moon peeking out through the scattered clouds, Science Center staff and volunteers welcomed students and their families to Science Night inside the Francis Wyman gymnasium. The Science Night proved to be the best yet, with several takeaways including oobleck, straw rockets, and “sound sandwiches” as well as guided tours of the StarLab and our moon’s surface with the Science Center’s large reflection telescope!

We think the mystery matter is a liquid! #sciencenight

Students also explored the spectrum of invisible, “infrared light” with the help of the Science Center’s new infrared camera! Many students danced and played, watching their colorful outlines projected on the gymnasium wall while Cambridge College graduate students presented heat energy experiments to them through the use of ice cubes and students’ own insulating jackets!

As always Miss Pavlicek and her incredible cadre of Science Center volunteers were sharing fascinating nocturnal animals with those willing to get up close in the live animal exhibit! BHSRobotix team members were also on hand to share the features of the Lego Mindstorms kits available on loan to Burlington students during the fall and winter through the Science Center.

Francis Wyman’s Science Night was proudly sponsored by the Francis Wyman PTO and marks the fourth Science Night hosted by the Burlington Science Center. All four Burlington elementary schools have now hosted a Science Night to rave reviews. Miss Pavlicek and Mr. Musselman intend to start the cycle again and return to Pine Glen next year!

Close encounters with this flying object! #sciencenight
