Application for Sponsored 2023 Duke Energy Science Night Activity Kit

Duke Energy Science Night

Funding from the Duke Energy Foundation allows NCSciFest staff to produce STEM activities and resource kits for use by elementary schools across the state. This program is designed to help you host a fun science event for your students and their families with the use of a kit that includes hands-on activities aligned with K-5 Science Standards, a planning guide, activity instructions, materials for up to 200 participants, and the support of NCSciFest staff.

The Duke Energy Foundation sponsorship funds a limited number of kits to award at no charge. These are awarded to schools using an application process that includes a review of the school's statement, need, demographics, geography, and past participation.

Please discuss the program and application with school administrators and staff before applying.  If you have questions, please contact the NCSciFest team by email (ncscifestschools@unc.edu) or phone (919-962-3274).

Application deadline is September 23, 2022.  Schools will be notified of their status on September 30, 2022. Selected schools are expected to confirm their committment to hosting an April 2023 event by October 7, 2022. There is a high demand for this program and so we do create a short waitlist in case a selected school declines. Kits will ship in early February, 2023.
