Science Day - Día de la Ciencia 2022

Learn. Explore. Play! In this family-oriented bilingual program, PCCM invites the public to explore science with Princeton University researchers. With many table-top activities focusing on materials science and nanoscience, families interact with Spanish and English speaking scientists and engineers who study and manipulate materials on the nanoscale. Join us and discover what our scientists are doing with computers, polymers and even diamonds! Join Princeton University's scientists and engineers to learn more about the exciting new research currently going on in materials science. Visit the many table top activities and demonstrations, engage the scientists and engineers, ask plenty of questions (either in Spanish or English!), and have fun with your entire family. Free and open to the public. 

When: 1 pm - 3 pm, Saturday, November 5, 2022
