Lake Whitney Elementary hosted its Science Night event on Tuesday, Jan. 24, in the school’s cafeteria.
Science Night, hosted by Lake Whitney’s Parent Teacher Organization, allowed participating students to participate in 15 hands-on activity stations, ranging from building alka-seltzer rockets to testing out their computer engineering skills with a Makey-Makey invention kit.
The evening also included two viewings of the Kaboom Science Show presented by the Orlando Science Center and a raffle for tickets to the center.
Students and families had the opportunity to enjoy Chick-Fil-A available for purchase and Publix helped to donate items to the Science Night.
At the conclusion of the event, all students took home materials to create a Mentos geyser to further their scientific investigations at home.
