Junaluska Elementary School Title I hosted a Duke Energy Science Night on Tuesday, March 17. This was an official event of the 2015 North Carolina Science Festival.

Duke Energy Science Night featured hands-on activities focusing on science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Activities were designed to engage children and their families in science exploration.

Junaluska Elementary School was one of 125 North Carolina elementary schools selected to host Duke Energy Science Nights this year. The educational program is an initiative of the North Carolina Science Festival and serves its mission to inspire future generations of scientists. Support from Duke Energy Foundation allows the Festival to provide all materials for the activities to the selected schools.

“Thousands of schoolchildren across the state get to do hands-on science with their families and school communities through Duke Energy Science Nights,” said Jonathan Frederick, Festival director. “We are extremely grateful to the Duke Energy Foundation, which has made these events possible for schools in every region of our state.”

The North Carolina Science Festival is a two-week statewide series of events showcasing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), presented annually. It includes hands-on activities, science talks, lab tours, nature experiences, exhibits, performances and other events, hosted by many different organizations within North Carolina. The Festival is produced by Morehead Planetarium and Science Center (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill).
