This article is about one way to organize a Family Science Night. I was surprised at the way this was organized, as I had been trained to be a Family Science Night presenter by the Foundation for Family Science many years ago and this is not the format they use. However, this is a very interesting way to go about doing a Family Science Night and it hits many of the same topics in a different way. Both seek to encourage parents to participate in their children's education and to show an interest in science. I thought the $10 budget was a little low, but other than that, it did a good job of outlining an efficient method to bring parents to school!
