Family Science and Engineering Nights
Family Science and Engineering Nights (FSENs) are held in local elementary schools within a 45-minute drive of Oregon State University. FSENs are offered on certain Thursday nights throughout the University term from 6:30PM - 8:00PM. OSU students and faculty bring hands-on science and engineering activities for a fun family event!
Activities change depending on department availability, but have inluded the following in the past:
- Dry Ice
- Taste and Smell
- Liquid Nitrogen
- Gel Polymers
- Super Absorbant Polymers
- Segway Scooters
There is no cost for schools to attend; however, we do ask that the following facility requests are provided to ensure all activities are possible:
- 10 full-sized lunch tables (One table will need access to electricity)
- Access to a door that leads outside to well-lit flat spot (for firing rockets)
- A 50'x10' open area inside the gym for the Segway scooter
- Access to water (preferably warm), does not need to be running at the table.
