AHOSKIE – Bearfield Primary School will host a Duke Energy Science Night at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 20 in the Bears’ Cafe.

This is an official event of the 2023 North Carolina Science Festival.

Duke Energy Science Nights feature hands-on activities designed to help children and their families explore science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

This event is for Bearfield Primary students and their families.

Bearfield Primary is one of 180 North Carolina elementary schools hosting Duke Energy Science Nights in April 2023. Funding from the Duke Energy Foundation allows the festival to provide each school with the support and materials needed for the activities.

The Duke Energy Foundation seeks to power vibrant communities through investments in high-performing, sustainable initiatives that emphasize STEM, including programs that help create greater access to and participation in STEM-related informal and out-of-school educational opportunities.

Duke Energy Science Nights are an educational initiative of the North Carolina Science Festival, with statewide science programming for all ages.

The NC Science Festival is a month-long celebration of science that occurs every April. Festival events include hands-on activities, science talks, lab tours, nature experiences, exhibits, performances and other events, all hosted by many different organizations within North Carolina.

The North Carolina Science Festival is produced by Morehead Planetarium and Science Center (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill).
