Children explore the universe of science at Family Science Day

By Neil Murthy

Children explored robotics and met a NASA astronaut as they delved into experiments  at the Family Science Day hosted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) annual conference in Washington, D.C.

AAAS is the world’s largest general science society and brings together leaders from multiple disciplines to share their research developments. Family Science Day gave junior scientists the opportunity to engage with the experts, ask questions, and help create a model of Mars.
