Join Viterbo STEM students and faculty for an evening of interactive science experiments and demonstrations.

Participants will sign up in Reinhart's main lobby and then go at their own pace to visit experiments throughout the building and outside.  In inclement weather, all demonstrations will be moved inside. Guardians and group leaders are required to sign a waiver upon arrival.

Experiments are best suited for 3-14 year olds, but every age is encouraged to attend. All children must be with a guardian. 

Free and open to the public. No registration required.
