MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Thursday night was family Science Night at the U.P. Children's Museum. Kids had the opportunity to visit different science stations that included making slime, learning about the water system, and learning about fish and wildlife.
Science groups from Northern Michigan University were on hand to work with the kids and their families. They say it's important to make science and learning fun.
"Just kind of having them get that experience that STEM isn't that scary, it's really fun and a lot of times your going to be interested in something that you didn't know you'd be interested in and then working with a lot of the clubs, our presidents are just really sweet," said Support Member, Heather Swinney.
Science Night is an annual event for the museum. It's part of their Second Thursday Creativity Series.
