Funding from the Duke Energy Foundation allows NC Science Festival staff to produce STEM activities and resource kits for use by elementary schools across the state. The Duke Energy Science Night program is designed to help schools host a fun science event for their students and families with the use of a resource kit that includes hands-on activities, a planning guide, activity instructions (in English and Spanish), materials for up to 200 participants, and the support of NCSciFest staff.
We will create a limited number of spots in our kit program for purchase. The preorder and prepayment process opens in early August. We require prepayment so that we can procure the kit materials and begin the fulfillment and program year in October. The kits ship in February to enable schools to hold their science event during April as part of the NC Science Festival.
The 2023-2024 kit program price is $595 plus sales tax.
In order to maintain a low price point despite an increase in materials costs, we are not able to offer a quantity discount this year.
Please discuss the program with school administrators before preordering.
If you have questions, please contact the NCSciFest team by email (email@example.com) or phone (919-962-3274).
You will receive an invoice and payment instructions via email (MPSC_Reservations@unc.edu) within 3 business days of submitting your preorder. Please add this email address to your contacts to be sure our correspondences do not get caught in your spam filter. Prepayments received by October 19, 2023 will guarantee a spot in the program. Preorders for any remaining kits will close once we reach the limit, with fulfillment occurring in the order that payments are received. Kits will ship mid February, 2024.
