Parents' Night Out

Parents’ Night Out is an opportunity for parents to have an evening to themselves and peace of mind knowing their children are in a safe, secure, and FUN environment.  Parents’ Night Out will take place on the AU campus. Children ages 6-12 are eligible to participate in the program. Children will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of science-based activities, including:

  • Learning how to construct and program LEGO robots
  • Designing/constructing K-Nex amusement park rides
  • Magic School Bus videos and other educational videos
  • Puzzles, word games, and educational board games
  • Arts and crafts
  • ….and much more!

    Drop-off and pick-up locations will be sent to parents upon receiving a completed registration form.  The cost is $25 for one child and $15 for each additional child in the same family. Pizza (cheese and meat options) will be served for dinner at approximately 7:00. Staff will include graduate and undergraduate students majoring in science and engineering who are student employees of COSAM Outreach, and at least one AU employee (8:1 student/staff ratio). All staff members have experience working with K-12 children in science-related educational environments.
